The family of the late Christian Kwame Amuzu, a former Assemblyman for Nogokpo-Ativuta Electoral Area in the Municipality of the , has refuted media reports that the deceased allegedly committed suicide.

“Torgbi Atsu Gledza, an elder brother of the late former Assemblyman and head of the Amuzu family told the (GNA) that the deceased was a healthy and hearty person, who did not complain of any illness or issues prior to his mysterious death,” according to GNA.

The family suspects that there was more to his sudden demise than is being speculated. “C. K is a prominent member of our society, a successful businessman, known widely in political circles – this is a man who has made it in life. In fact, with his position and status in the society, we do not believe he can take his own life – there is something more to his death than is being reported,” Torgbi Gledza said.

According to earlier reports, the wife of the late assemblyman did not pass the night at home prior to his death, contrary to the claims that she had taken their children to school.

The body of the deceased was found hanging on a rope in his living room in the early hours of Wednesday, June 14, leaving residents of the community in a state of shock and disbelief.

Mr. Jonas Fotor Agbagba, current assemblyman for the area, stated, “I met with him just yesterday [Tuesday] – as you know, the local assembly elections are just around the corner and so we had some discussions as to how best to position myself for the election and some other matters relating to the progress of the electoral area. He is someone who really has the interest of the area at heart – it's really shocking — I just can't believe it.”
