The body of a ninety year old man has been rejected by relatives after it was found decomposing in his room.

The man whose name was only given as Mr. Quansah is said to have been staying alone in his single room structure near the Anloga market, in the Oforikrom Constituency of the Kumasi metropolis.

The relatives have rejected the body for the reason gathered by Kapital News that he lived a careless life; and did not give a hoot about his relatives.

Residents in the area say he had lost his wife and grandchild years back and therefore was staying alone until his demise.

According to a resident, Mr. Quansah had fallen ill shortly before his body was found decomposing in his room. But for the awful stench that emanated from his room, his death would not have been noticed by residents.

Not even the intervention of the police could make the relatives come for the already decomposing body for burial. When some residents took the body to the  Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue, it was rejected by the authorities due to the state of the body. Christian Aidoo, a local journalist told Kapital news, a good Samaritan had to pay a mortuary attendant an amount of 200 before the body was taken.
