Man Dies At Bank
Residents of Ho woke up in the early hour of Tuesday to find the lifeless body of man in front of the North Tongu Rural Bank. The deceased looked like he was only resting after a day’s work but after several hours of staying in the same position with his eyes opened, onlookers became worried and tried to wake him up, only to realize that he was dead. A market woman told a cross-section of the crowd that gathered to catch a glimpse of the deceased that she saw him struggling at dawn, but did not assist him. Her confession angered some of the people who admonished her for not raising alarm for him t o be taken to the hospital. Detective Seargent David Duncan and ASP Mathias Yevuga of the Ho Municipal Police confirmed the death of the man to Daily Guide and said the body had been deposited at the Municipal hospital morgue, pending autopsy. The policemen noted that family members of the deceased who came to the station identified him as Paul Mawuko Bansah, 40, who lived at Bodu in the Eastern Region. According to reports, the deceased was suffering from hernia and stomach ache so he visited his brother at Accra to secure money to enable him travel to Tokokoe in the Ho Municipality where his parents were living for treatment. When he arrived in Ho he could not get a vehicle to Tokokoe, which was some few kilometers away because it was late and therefore rested on a shelf in front of the North Tongu Rural Bank. His long rest at the place at day break however raised suspicion. Some curious passers-by therefore attempted to wake, him up only to find out that he had long joined his ancestors.
