A chief has taken his own life after he lost the GHC120k AFCON bet. the chief is the Gyasehene of Dawuriso in the Asante Akyem North District of the Ashanti Region.
It is, not clear which team and match the late chief bet on.
The late Gyasehene of Dawuriso was the treasurer of the cocoa farmers in the Asante Akyem North District.
According to reports, the disturbed chief shot himself dead after using a huge sum of money to the tune of Ghc120,000 belonging to some cocoa farmers in the area to bet on the ongoing African Cup of Nations.
It is said that someone persisted on the late chief to bet the money on the ongoing AFCON games to double it and he caved.
He committed suicide on Thursday morning, January 13, 2022, in his bedroom.
We gather that the chief, 76 who also is a retired educationist before taking his life asked his son to prepare him some porridge for breakfast, he then killed himself after he left his presence.
Reports say the late chief discussed the circumstances surrounding his indebtedness to his colleague cocoa farmers in the district together with his family and they promised to help him raise the said amount but failed.
The late chief was expected to account for the money by Monday, January 17, 2022, hence killing himself because he knew he couldn’t produce the said amount of money at the stipulated time.
