Ing. Michael Asante, the Accra Area Manager of the Ghana Railways Company Limited, died tragically on Monday, October 25 when a train ran over him.
He was part of a management inspection team on a visit to the Accra-Nsawam rail line.
An eyewitness told Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson of Connect FM’s morning show that Ing. 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.
Tributes have already begun to flood in for him.
