A man in his late 30s has committed suicide in a bush close to the Densu River on the Kasoa Toll Booth stretch.

The deceased was found hanging on a tree on Sunday, December 18.

The identity of the deceased is yet to be made known.

But the police have commenced investigations into the death of the man.

An eyewitness who saw the deceased that fateful morning immediately called the police to the crime scene.

“I was heading to work around 5:30 am when I saw the man hanging on the tree. I quickly called the police, and they came in immediately. He had his identity cards on him, but the SIM card in his phone had been taken away,” the eyewitness said.

A similar incident happened in Kasoa sometime in October this year when a man committed suicide on a high-voltage GRIDCo transmission line.

He is said to have climbed the high-voltage transmission line pylon at Kasoa Galilea.

According to some eyewitnesses, he claimed he was tired of life.

On November 7, 2022, a 10-year-old girl at Agona Duotu in the Central Region allegedly committed suicide. The deceased was identified as Afia Awusi.

The class 3 pupil of Agona Duotu D/A Basic School reportedly hanged herself in the corridors of her home in the early hours of Monday, November 7.

Also, in November this year, a woman in her early 60s allegedly committed suicide on her farm at Breman Essiam in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District of the Central Region.

She was found hanging on a tree on her farm in the afternoon of Monday, November 28, 2022.

The deceased, Antie Esi Annan, went missing on Sunday, November 27, 2022, but the residents found her hanging on the tree.

According to the World Health Organisation, Africa has the highest rate of people dying by suicide in the world.

In a statement, the agency said Africa is home to six of the 10 countries with the highest suicide rates globally.

The continent is said to have one psychiatrist for every 500,000 inhabitants – 100 times less than the WHO recommendation.

Around 11 people per 100,000 per year die by suicide in the African region, higher than the global average of nine per 100,000 people, the WHO says.

Mental health problems account for up to 11% of the risk factors associated with suicide.

The agency added that mental health workers are mostly located in urban areas on the continent, a reason for the sharp increase.
