Thirty-three year-old man has been found dead in an open well from his home three days after he was reported missing at Hwidiem in the Asante Kyem North District of the Ashanti Region.

The well is an out-of-use facility that still holds some water.


Information gathered by Adanse3 fm , indicated that , the deceased, identified as Kofi Baidoo , an habitual drunkard had earlier told his family members that he will commit suicide but his family took frustrations as joke.


An assertion some community members also affirmed.


Residents, especially women, were driven to an emotional edge, with some crying out loudly as the body was recovered.


In an interview, Assembly member of Hwideim electoral area, Hon. Eric Boateng, said it took a team of Nadmo and police personnel to retrieve the body from the Well.


The body has been deposited at the Agogo Presbyterian hospital for autopsy.
