A man has been found hanging on a tree at Winneba Junction near the Kantanka Automobile Company Limited.

Narrating the incident to the Ghana News Agency, the Chief Superintendent Godfrey Tetteh Adjirakor, Winneba District Police Commander, said they received a phone call from a good Samaritan on Tuesday morning that someone has committed suicide in the neighbourhood of the Kantanka company.

Chief Superintendent Adjirakor said he dispatched a team of policemen who went to the scene and found a man dressed in a blue jeans trouser with a white T-shirt and hanging on a branch of a tree.

The Commander explained further that, an inspection was conducted on the body and a thorough search was also done in the area but nothing was found to identify him and even reach a family member.


Chief Superintendent Adjirakor said the body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba for preservation and autopsy.

He said a photograph of him would be published in the media for his family members to identify him and collect the body for proper burial.
