A 40-year-old trader, identified as Nana Sammy, has committed suicide by drinking a full bottle of weedicide after his wife reportedly denied him sex and hence got a broken heart.

The unfortunate incident occurred at Assin Kyinaso in the Assin South District of the Central Region.

Information gathered indicated that the deceased had a misunderstanding with his wife and eventually left the marriage with the children.

Unable to deal with his predicament, Nana Sammy decided to end his life by gulping down the weedicide.

In an interview, Mr Gyamfi, a brother of the deceased, said that he had spoken with the deceased a night before where the deceased disclosed his unhappiness since his wife left the marriage with the children.

The following day as he was passing by, he found the deceased in a pool of vomit and faeces with him lying in a recumbent position.

When asked, the deceased confessed he had drunk poison to end his life due to the pain rendered by his wife.

He was rushed to Abura Dunkwa Government Hospital where he passed on.

Mr Gyamfi, however, stressed that the doctors are yet to confirm to them whether their brother died of the poison or something else.

The case has been reported to the Abura Dunkwa Police for investigation.

Meanwhile, all efforts to get the wife for comment proved futile.
