Prison officer commits suicide


A 33-year-old Prison officer has committed suicide at Duayaw Nkwanta in the Tano North District of the Brong-Ahafo Region.

The deceased whose name was only given as Budu is said to have hanged himself in his room.

Adom News’ Brong Ahafo Regional correspondent, Augustine Kwadwo Mframa reported that residents expressed shock at his sudden demise.

They indicated that aside being a prison officer, Budu also owns a printing press and two shops thus his conduct cannot be blamed on monetary issue.

Kwadwo Mframa added that the deceased was along in the house since his wife recently travelled to Accra to welcome her brother who had come from abroad.
Meanwhile, police in Tano North has begun an investigation into the bizarre incident.

District Commander, DSP Awuah Baffuor told Adom News the cause of his conduct is still unknown but the body has been deposited at the morgue for autopsy.
