The deceased identified as Akwasi Boakye, in his 40's, alias Menamewoho, alias Congo Soldier was a native of the community.
He was found dead in front of the property on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at about 7:00am.
DAILY WATCH source indicated that a woman who lives close to the scene initially bumped into the body. She immediately raised an alarm to attract other neighbours to the scene.
The Assembly man of the Aburaso Electoral Area, Emmannuel Nyanteng who was called to the scene, also called the Suntreso District Police to report the case.
The cause of the man’s death has not been established. However, some residents who were at the scene suspect foul play, alleging that he might have been poisoned.
The deceased who was lying prone, had his right hand firmly held on his stomach with food (rice) in the mouth, an indication that he might have been eaten before he passed on.
The deceased also had part of his face wounded with blood stains at where he was lying.
No arrests have been made.
However, in an interview with the Assemblyman, Emmanuel Nyanteng, he appealed to anyone in the area who have information about the death of the deceased or heard anything suspicious to contact him or the police.
“The death of Akwasi Boakye is painful and I entreat everyone to be watchful henceforth,” he said.
He described the deceased as respectful, sociable and hardworking man who was very loved by all.
Meanwhile, he indicated to DAILY WATCH that, but for the Covid- 19 directive and the ban on social gathering, a Community Watchdog Committee that had been formed would have been inaugurated to start work.
The corpse of the deceased has been deposited in the mortuary.
