A national service personnel at the Methodist Primary School, Solomon Akoto is feared to have died upon arrival at the hospital after rehearsing for tomorrow's Independence Day Parade.

Reports do indicate that Solomon, upon feeling dizzy during the rehearsal, insisted on excusing himself to catch some fresh air. Colleagues at the scene thus told the deceased to go get some food to eat - a development which saw him collapse on the scene.

He was rushed to the Suhum hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival. The body has been deposited at the Suhum government Hospital morgue.
