Nana Adu Akuffo, one of the elders close to the late Chief told Starr News’ Eastern Regional correspondent Kojo Ansah that “just this dawn we heard something like gunshot so we came around only for us to see the chief dead in a pool of blood in his bathroom. We realised he shot himself with his double barreled gun which as we speak is beside him.”
The case has been reported to the police for investigation.
The deceased was a former headmaster and Catechist of the Presbyterian Church left behind seven children.
