Chiefs and people of Kwame Peprakrom, a farming community in the Upper Denkyira East Municipality of the Central Region were thrown into a state of shock and grief after a 92-year-old woman committed suicide by hanging.
Reports say the deceased is believed to have gone missing on the evening of Saturday, June 6, 2020, after efforts including series of announcements on the Community’s Information Centre, to track her whereabouts proved futile.

The deceased, until her unfortunate death was said to be living with a 70-year-old man believed to be her husband.
It is not immediately known what might have led to her suicide.
