“Just this dawn we heard something like a gunshot so we came around only for us to see the chief dead in a pool of blood in his bathroom. We realised he shot himself with his double-barreled gun which as we speak is beside him,” Nana Adu Akuffo said.
Nana Ayesu Agyei who is believed to be in his 60s was found dead in his bathroom around 3:30 am.
He did not leave any suicide note, however, persons close to him are linking his death to a land case.
The deceased is reported to be involved in several land disputes.
The case has been reported to the police for investigation.
The deceased was a former headmaster and Catechist of the Presbyterian Church left behind seven children.
