Farmer Allegedly Commits Suicide In Prison After Killing His Wife
After reporting himself to the police for the murder of his wife, Madam Abena Asabea, a 60-year-old farmer allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in the Agona Duakwa Police cells.
According to Mr. Joe Buabeng, a family spokesperson, the dead reported the matter to the police because his elderly son Kwame Siripi complained that his father abused his mother for no apparent reason.
He claimed that the police told them that the dead allegedly hanged himself with a rope in a dress he was wearing, and that three cellmates in the same jail as him alerted the officers on duty.
Fii Kwao passed out and was brought to the Salvation Army clinic in Duakwa, where he was pronounced dead.
The spokesman requested that the Inspector General of Police conduct a complete inquiry into their relative’s abrupt death in order to uncover the mystery surrounding his death.
He claimed that the police in Duakwa were inventing new explanations for the events that led to the usage of rope in the police cells, which the family found weird and mysterious.
According to him, the police advised the family to send the body to the Accra Police Hospital for an autopsy, which the family consented to.
The Commander’s phone was turned off for several hours while the report was being written.
