Accra – A 37-year-old man was reportedly hacked to death by unknown assailants while taking a nap at his home in Ghana's Volta region.

According to Ghanaweb, Philip Ahorsu was having siesta when the unknown invader broke into his room and attacked him with a machete, "leaving severe multiple wounds on him, before fleeing".

Ahorsu was allegedly found unconscious with his intestines "gushing out".

He was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Police were still investigating.
