A man in his early 40s was found dead behind a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) filling station early Tuesday morning at Asesewa in the Eastern Region.
Trust FM reporter, Stephen Zutah who reported from the scene said, the security officer was an employee of the Manbah Gas filling station, where he was manning until his untimely death around 5:00 am on 14 February 2023.
The corpse, whose identity was given as Felix and popularly known among friends and work colleagues as Abotre, was said to have been spotted speaking to his manager during the early part of the faithful morning when the manager arrived at the filling station.
According to Zutah, the security guard complained of ill health and went for medical treatment a day before his demise on Tuesday.
“Abotre returned from the Asesewa hospital telling me that his doctor said he (Abotre) should have enough rest due to his ailment. Furthering his explanation, he revealed that the doctor said the day he will vomit blood, he would die,” the late security guard’s coworker who spoke on anonymity told Trust FM.
Felix was seen half-naked and lifelessly lying in a banana farm just behind the walls of the gas filling station he was guarding with blood oozing from his nose.
Blood from various spots within the premises of the filing station were spotted and captured when Stephen Zutah went to the incident scene.
Having admitted to receiving complaints about the sad situation, the Asesewa District Police Commander Superintendent Jeremiah Alale said, the corpse has been deposited at the Asesewa Government Hospital, awaiting for autopsy investigation.
He added: “it is alleged that the person was a tuberculosis patient and there is the need to investigate from the hospital.”
Some friends and residents who had been playing cards with Abotre are in a state of surprise hearing the bad news of the demise of their friend.
While some found it difficult to believe the news, others felt Abotre’s demise needs serious interrogation and investigation.
