Man, 29, allegedly commits suicide over lover

Suicide rope

A 29-year-old man, only identified as John, who is a resident of Nweneso No. 2 in the Ashanti region, has allegedly committed suicide.

According to sources, he committed the act after his long time girlfriend refused to marry him.

A witness, Kwame Di Wo D3, in an interview with Adom News identified the lady as a 25-year-old named Mercy.

He said the two have been in a serious relationship for a long time and cannot fathom why she turned down his marriage proposal.

Kwame indicated the deceased was a ‘galamseyer’ and also a northerner.

Prior to the suicide, witnesses said John started making a strange pronouncement in the community that he was going to kill himself.
