Micheal Asante, the Accra Area Manager of the Ghana Railways Company Limited, died tragically on Monday, October 25 when a train ran over him.
On a tour of the Accra-Nsawam rail line, he was part of a management inspection team.
An eyewitness told Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson of Connect FM’s morning show that, Asante was standing on the train’s outer frontage when they observed a naked electric line spanning the route around Pokuase.
The Accra Area Manager jumped off the moving train to escape becoming entangled in the cable.
Unfortunately, he was murdered instantaneously as the train ran over him.
