A second-year student of Amankyim Senior High School (SHS) has allegedly committed suicide at Akrokeri Bobrase in the Adansi North District of the Ashanti Region.

The student, Kwaku Frimpong, aged 20, was found hanging dead in his room on Wednesday.

Speaking to Adom News, the deceased’s grandmother, Ama Duku, who expressed shock at the incident, said the young man had prepared supper, served his younger brother and kept the rest of the food in his room.

She explained that she needed to use the pot, he cooked in, to boil water. Thus, she went into his room for it.

“But the door was locked and when I forced it open, I saw him hanging dead,” Ama Duku said amid tears.

The Assemblyman for Bobrease Electoral Area, Clifford Amakye, who also expressed shock at the incident, has urged the Police to investigate the death.

Meanwhile, Frimpong’s friends, recounting fond memories of him, said they were yet to come to terms with the news of his demise.

They described him as a calm person, adding that they did not expect him to die that way.
