Teachers in the Krachi Nchumuru District of the Volta Region are set to declare an indefinite strike over the gruesome murder of their colleague, Marshal Mensah Manasseh.
Marshal Manasseh went missing early this month and his decomposed body was found days after a search, floating on a river close to the Hunokope community, where the deceased resided.
George Achiba, the Regional Vice Chairman of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) told Joy News that they suspected foul play because the life of the deceased was threatened, hence he fled the Hunokope community to Konkomba.
Mr. Achiba added that while Manasseh was in Konkomba to spend the night, two gentlemen from Hunokope came to take him back with them, after denying the threats on Manasseh?s life.
It was late at night so Manasseh wanted to spend the night in Konkomba. However, the men suggested that if the deceased spent the night there, the alleged rumour about the threats would seem true. Manasseh therefore agreed to return to Hunokope with the gentlemen, but was reported missing the next morning.
After days of search, a smock allegedly belonging to the deceased was found in a canoe which was supposed to be from Hunokope. Later, his decomposed body was found floating on a river close to Hunokope.
According to George Achiba, the strike was a way of condemning the murder and pushing for justice to be done.
