Residents said they heard shouts from the home early Thursday, which attracted them to the home only to find his lifeless body hanging on a rope in the kitchen.

An eyewitness who gave her name as Gifty said Kuntu's grandchildren, found his lifeless body hanging at about 6 am when they woke up to prepare for school.

His wife, Grace Yeboah who confirmed the incident said when she woke up and did not see Kuntu, she initially assumed he had gone for his usual jogging in the morning until the grandchildren found his body hanging in the kitchen.

His remains have since been deposited at the University of Cape Coast morgue.
