A twenty-five year old man, Obeng Hamza of Ntankoful in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis in the Western Region collapsed and subsequently died at a clinic after contesting in an Akpeteshie Challenge.

The story has thrown the community in a state of shock and grief.

Narrating the incident leading to the death to GBC’s Radio Ghana in Sekondi, the bar owner, Kojo Isaac Eshun said the now deceased Hamza and his friend Gyentia came to his bar around 9am and ordered for a full bottle of local gin “Akpeteshie”.

The bar owner said in no time, the two consumed the drink and ordered for another round.

He said Hamza was weak and started sweating profusely and raised an alarm but was pronounced dead at the Spring Mission Clinic, while Gyentia is responding to treatment.

Brother -In law of Hamza, said the deceased has brought shame to the family because he was a Muslim and Muslims are not to take in alcohol .

He said because of the incident, the deceased will not be given a Muslim burial.
