A chief from Asante Akyem North District of the Ashanti Region in Ghana has committed suicide after losing GHC 120k AFCON bet.


According to the reports, Gyasehene of Dawuriso shot himself dead after allegedly placing a bet on the ongoing AFCON games on a team that is still anonymous but they failed to secure the win.

The perplexed chief decided to end his life since the money he had used to bet with belonged to the Cocoa farmers in Asante and he was their treasurer.


The incident happened yesterday morning, January 13, 2022, in his master's bedroom.
The deceased was 76-years-old.
