“…the incident has taken us by surprise and we don’t know what made my son hang himself,” the teary father of Kwasi Amponsah told Kwame Yeboah who reports for Akoma FM.

According to an eyewitness, “the victim was shaking at the time we got to the scene but I was scared to touch the victim because I felt it might affect police investigations but later the young man gave up the ghost.”
