Joseph Frimpong Addo

Suhum ECG Accountant commits suicide with weedicide
Joseph Frimpong Addo, accountant for the
Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in the Suhum
municipality of the Eastern Region, has allegedly
committed suicide in an uncompleted building.

The deceased was found in one of the rooms of his
uncompleted house at Okorase, a suburb of Suhum,
Wednesday morning.

According to police reports, the deceased is
believed to have drunk weedicide – a liquid
substance used to kill weeds – leading to his
death.

Frimpong Addo’s body has been deposited at the St.
Joseph’s Hospital in Koforidua pending autopsy.

It’s unclear what caused him to take the substance
but sources said his health was failing him of
late and so he might have taken the action out of
frustration.

The Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of
the Ghana Police Service, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh,
confirmed to this paper that the police was led to
an uncompleted self-contained building and
inspection revealed that both the front and the
rear doors were locked from inside.

According to the police, the door was forced
opened and the body of Joseph Addo Frimpong was
found lying in one of the rooms.
