A 28-year-old gold buyer has been found dead in the bush at Bonsawire in the Tarkwa Nsueam Municipality on Tuesday.

The body of the deceased, Kwebena Nti could not be conveyed to the Tarkwa government hospital for autopsy, as it was in a highly decomposed state.

Chief Superintendent Ernest Kuukure Maayeb told the Ghana New Agency on Wednesday that Mr David Bavanasco, the father to the deceased, reported to the Tarkwa police on Monday April 23 that his son Kwebena Nti left Tarkwa on April 18 to collect money from a colleague at Bonsawire but has since not returned.

He said a day after the complainant made the report, the police received information from one Mr Joseph Adjei Sowah, a relative to the deceased that the lifeless body of the missing gold buyer had been found in a bush upon a search organized by the chief of Bonsawire Nana Kwasi Ampon II.

Superintendent Maayeb said when the police visited the scene, they saw that the body had multiple cutlass wounds all over.

He said to avoid any health hazard, the police arranged for a medical superintendent to examine the body immediately at the spot where the incident occurred, after which it would be released to the family for burial.

He said investigation is still ongoing.
