Miss Sadia Salifu, a 25-year-old seamstress apprentice, was found hanging on a cocoa tree near Nkawkaw–Agbogbloshie market.
According to her uncle, Alhaji Abdul Salam, the deceased left home last Saturday but did not return until a relative at Nkawkaw informed him of her death.
He told the Ghana News Agency that Ms Salifu was befriending a driver at Nkawkaw who approached the family that he wanted to marry her but they declined as he was not a Muslim.
A police source, who pleaded anonymity, said they had information that a young lady had hanged herself on a cocoa tree along the railway line near the Nkawkaw-Agbogbloshie market and went there.
He said they detected some blood stains under the cocoa tree and also saw some mud in her dress which indicated that there was a struggle before being hanged.
