Tailor kills self after GF Jilts him


A 39-year-old tailor, identified as Kwame Ntiako Aboagye has reportedly committed suicide after his girlfriend dumped him for another.
The Sekondi-Takoradi resident according to GhanaWeb stabbed himself over and over again last Thursday close to the Takoradi Technical University (TTU).
His remains have since been deposited at a morgue nearby.
An eyewitness shared: “So I thought the deceased was a driver who wanted to use the knife to do some work on his vehicle.”
“I suddenly realised that the man used the knife to stab himself repeatedly. The deceased stabbed himself repeatedly amidst shouts of “what I have bumped into this afternoon is very shocking,”she added.
She said onlookers chased the deceased but he ran quickly into the bush near TTU Park where he continued to stab himself.
He was finally rushed to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
She noted that a mobile phone, SSNIT ID card and wallet, which contained an amount of GH?401.50, were found on him after a search.
ASP Olivia Ewurabena Adiku, Western Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), confirmed that the incident occurred on March 29, 2018 at about 3:40pm.
She, however, could not confirm whether the deceased was indeed jilted by the girlfriend.
She noted that the deceased, who lived at I.Adu near Anaji, stabbed himself several times in the stomach and subsequently cut his throat at the TTU Park.
According to the police PRO, the deceased was rushed to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekobdi for treatment but he died shortly.
“The body of the deceased has been deposited at the hospital mortuary for autopsy,” she added.
