28-year-old commits suicide after Akufo-Addo's defeat
A 28-year-old man has committed suicide after his preferred candidate in the 2012 presidential elections, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,lost the polls.

Stephen Manu aka Zack reportedly warned his close friends and relatives prior to the election he would kill himself if the NPP candidate did not win the election.

He hanged himself with a sponge in his room near Dot’s Spot at Teshie, a suburb of Accra. He is unmarried but has a child.

A friend of the deceased told listeners of Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem that Zack had been drinking heavily since the election results were announced, having banked his hopes on an Akufo-Addo victory.

He had very harsh words for E.C. Chairman Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan, who he accused of helping to rob his candidate of victory.

Adom News' Kofi Assan tells adomonline.com that relatives and friends of the deceased are still agonizing over what they see as a needless death.
