Confirming the news toDAILY GUIDE, the Kintampo Municipal Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Desmond Owusu Boampong, said police preliminary investigations established that the deceased had for some time conceived the idea of taking his life.
He said the police discovered that on Wednesday the Accountant worked happily with his colleagues and bought the rope he used to commit the suicide same day.
