Kasoa man climbs high-tension pole to die over severe hardship in Ghana; Video drops
A middle-aged Ghanaian man is said to have climbed a high-tension pole in Kasoa, a village in Ghana’s Central Region.
According to eyewitness sources, his choice was made to protest the country’s present economic distress.
In a viral video spotted by GhanaWeb, the man was shown swiftly climbing the high-tension pole while spectators begged him to come down.
A Ghana Police Service truck was also visible in the footage, giving the appearance that cops were on the site to assist in getting the man down the pole before he jeopardized his life even more.
According to journalist Kwaku Asante, who published the footage on Twitter, the man climbed the pole because he was tired of life.
“A guy has climbed the high tension poles in Kasoa and, according to eyewitnesses, has stated that he would not return despite the presence of police.” “He claims he’s sick of life and the economy,” Asante said on Twitter.
In the backdrop of the footage, a spectator with a Nigerian accent was heard running commentary, suggesting that a Ghanaian guy had climbed the pole due to the country’s troubles.
“The cops are on the way to rescue this Ghanaian man who claims to be bored of life.” “They should let him rise,” the guy stated in Pidgin English.
The Ghana Police Service has not commented on the incident yet.
