Every new year comes with its own hopes and aspirations. But this was never the case for 28-year old mason, Kwasi Mfum who gave up on life and took his life in his home on New Year's eve.
The sad event, which happened at Akyem Hemang in the Fanteakwa District of the Eastern region has raised suspicion among family and friends who say the young man could have been killed by an assassin.
“He fastened a sponge on his neck and hanged it on frame of the door. This is a hardworking mason who is not known to have any problems with anyone at all in the community”, he revealed.
Meanwhile, the body has since been conveyed to the Fanteakwa District hospital pending autopsy to determine the actual cause of death as the police begin investigations.
