A Ghanaian student studying in the Liaoning Shihua University, China, has reportedly died from injuries sustained as he attempted to scale over his school’s wall after arriving late from town.
The student, identified as Joseph Amoako, is reported to have gone out with friends and returned drunk.
As school regulations required that anyone who returned after 11 pm is denied access at the school’s gate, Joseph allegedly attempted to sneak in by climbing a tree to gain access to the school’s premises.

In an attempt to climb the tree, however, he, unfortunately, fell off it, sustaining life-threatening injuries that demanded that he undergoes a brain surgery as his senses became temporarily dysfunctional.
Reports from China say his fellow Ghanaian students tried frantically to raise some funds to support his hospital bills but he gave up the ghost shortly after.
A CCTV footage that has been made available to the Ghanaian student-community in China and in the possession of adomonline.com from the school appears to confirm the fall from a tree of an individual.
The incident, according to Adomonline.com sources in China, happened on the morning of Tuesday, October 29, 2019.
However, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of NUGS-China says Mr Amoako “is currently in a critically unstable situation at a hospital in China.
“For the avoidance of doubt and to clear any misinformation being peddled around concerning the status of our brother on various social media and news portals, (NEC) would like to set the records straight to get all leaders and members informed about the “real issues on the ground’ as stated hereunder.”
According to the NEC, “Doctors have not declared him dead and neither has the hospital initiated any process of issuing death certificate to that effect so let’s desist from making pronouncements that seek to suggest that he is dead.”
