Man Found Dead At Juaben; Residents Suspect Foul Play

A man believed to be in his 40s has been found dead at a plantation farm on the Effiduase/Juaben road in the Ejisu Juaben municipality of the Ashanti Region.

The cause of the death is not readily known but residents suspect foul play.

Narrating the incident to a local radio reporter Akwadaa Nyame, the assembly member for the area, Hon Kwadwo Sarpong, said the residents suspect foul play because ”when you consider the posture in which he was found, that couldn’t have been suicide.”

He said, “There’s a small poisonous container beside him and some blood stains in his right arms as if he was injected. Residents say he is not from the area because “nobody has been able to recognise him.”

The remains of the man whose identity is yet to be known has been deposited at the Juaben Government Hospital mortuary by the Juaben police.

Senior Mortuary Attendant, Mr Moses Acquah, told the reporter that the body had decomposed and needed to be buried as soon as possible since they could not cope with the stench.
