The incident is said to have occurred on Monday, October 25, 2021.

A witness told Connect FM that Mr Asante was standing in the outer frontage of the train when they saw a naked electric wire across the route around Pokuase.
The deceased then jumped off the moving train in an attempt to avoid being entangled by the wire but was run over, killing him on the spot.
