His colleagues, according to the neighbours, kept it to themselves out of fear until Sunday when his body was eventually discovered floating in the lagoon.

A report was immediately made to the police who have since retrieved the body and conveyed it to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital morgue while investigation into the case continues.
