The deceased brother, Mr. Kofi Azuma, said his brother (Kwaku Awuni) had attempted to commit suicide by taking poisonous substance last week but he was stopped whilst the substance was retrieved from him. He was even threatened with police arrest if he repeated the action.

Mr. Azuma further revealed that he had a call from the deceased man’s children that he had left home with a sponge and so he decided to trace his brother, Kwaku Awuni only to come across his lifeless body hanging in a cocoa plantation.
