The Police at Akatsi south District is currently investigating the sudden demise of a 58-year-old farmer who was found dead at his maize farm by elders of Agornu Kporkplortey, a village near Akatsi in the Akatsi South District of the Volta Region.

The deceased, Emmanuel Awudi, who resides at Agornu was said to have left home on Monday to visit his farm but did not return.

Chief Superintendent Joseph Dzineku, Akatsi South District Commander of Police confirmed the incident to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), saying the police on Tuesday received a report from an aspiring assembly member for the area, Mr. Kennedy Biedo that one of the elders of the town has been found dead on his farm.

According to Chief Supt. Dzineku, some elders of the town said the deceased left his home to check his farm on Monday but did not return.

“Thinking he spent the night for his usual hunting activities in the bush as well after visiting the farm, all efforts to reach him the next day by the town elders did not yield any result.”

Chief Supt. Dzineku said the situation prompted the elders of the town to organized a local search party to his farm and was thereafter found dead there.

He said the Akatsi Police upon receipt of the report went to the scene and saw the lifeless body with no visible marks of assault.

He said the body has since been deposited at St. Paul’s Hospital morgue for autopsy for further investigations

  1. I am sad on hearing the news of the death of my constituent Mr Emmanuel Awudi 58yrs who was found dead in his farm in the Akatsi South District. Is really sad not knowing the cause of death but I believe in the Police and that they will soon get to the root of this matter and find the cause of his death and proceucte the perpetuaters of this act only if it is a case of murder.

    On behalf of the All People’s Congress *(APC)* and the party members in the Akatsi South Constituency or District, We send our condolences to the families of the deceased Mr Emmanuel Awudi and that they should take heart for God Knows best. *’It is He who Ttaketh and It is He who Gives ‘*

    I urge the Police to do their good job in finding the cause of his death and the Public should help or cooperate with the Police and families in the ongoing investigation so as to bring a good result.

    Anyone found guilty in the cause of the death of Mr Emmanuel Awudi should be prosecuted.
    May the good Lord Protect us all.
