44-year-old lawyer hangs self in his office

A 44-year-old lawyer, Kofi Yawson-Adjei, committed suicide by hanging himself. According to Ghanaweb.com, Yawson-Adjei, who is the Secretary of the Ghana Institution of Surveyors (GIS) and valuers, hanged himself in his private office on the first floor of a rented premises at Adabraka.
The father of three is said to have left his Kokomlemle residence about 3 a.m. for his office (in a taxi), where the incident took place.
He left a written note directing a lady named Narh to give a signed cheque for GH¢3,000 to his wife.
The elder sister of the deceased would not allow members of the media to enter the office where the deceased was found hanging.
A picture captured on a mobile phone, however, showed the deceased wearing a white T-shirt and a red boxer’s shorts and hanging from the ceiling with a rope around his neck.
A source told the Daily Graphic that his wife had called to inform Yawson-Adjei’s elder sister that her brother had left home at dawn and was nowhere to be found. “It was when the sister dashed here around 6 a.m. that she discovered his body hanging,” the source said.
A neighbour who pleaded anonymity said he had seen the deceased arrive at the office at about 4 a.m. in a taxi.
“He was in the car for about 10 minutes and then later got out and went to his office. He was in T-shirt and boxer’s shorts,” the neighbour said.
