A 16-year-old final year student of Miracle Junior High School at Sunyani in the Bono Region, Leticia Kyere Pinaman, has allegedly committed suicide.
The deceased was found hanging Monday evening at the school’s dining hall.
She was found by her colleagues at around 9:30pm. It is not yet clear what might have accounted for the incident.
The Housemistress of the school, Gifty Acheampong, in a radio interview with Accra-based Citi FM, said “I was in the kitchen when I heard the students shouting. I rushed there and saw her handing. So I quickly rushed to the church auditorium to call the proprietor and the proprietress.”
Confirming the incident, the Sunyani Division Police Crime Officer, DSP Kingsley Wiredu, said his outfit was gathering facts and would brief the media at the appropriate time.
The body of the student has been deposited at the Bono Regional Hospital Morgue.
