A paramount chief in the Central Region reportedly died on Valentine's Day at a beach resort while in the company of his concubine.
The chief, aged about 64, (name withheld to uphold customary practices) was said to have informed his wife that he was going to a meeting.
He reportedly arranged with a taxi driver to pick the concubine to a beach resort where he had already make reservations for a room.
The chief followed later in a taxi to join her.
The Ghana News Agency was informed by sources at the resort that after being in the room for a while, the woman started screaming for help and ran out towards the sea in an attempt to drown herself.
A prompt intervention by some workers, however, prevented the woman from drowning.
The source said the proprietor tried to get a taxi to send the chief to a nearby hospital but it was detected that he was already dead.
His body was conveyed to the 37 Military Hospital mortuary in Accra.
The woman and the proprietor are helping the police in their investigations.
When the GNA contacted the Apam police, they confirmed the death.
