One Akwasi Appiah is said to have shot himself inside his house at at Sefwi Asanteman in the Akontombra District of the Western North Region.
The deceased, 35 years old, took his life shortly after returning from his farm.
He is said to have marched into his room and shot himself minutes later. Neighbours rushed to his room but not much could have been done to keep him alive.
The deceased wife, Georgina Asante, who had traveled at that time, remarked that she is shocked with the development, adding no misunderstanding had ensued between them whatsoever.
Unit Committee Chairman for the electoral area, Emmanuel Asiedu, said the body has been sent to Wiawso Government Hospital morgue after police examination.
