Final year student of Takoradi Technical University commits suicide

A tragic piece of news from Takoradi reveals the passing of a Takoradi Technical University (TTU) final-year student. In his own hostel at West Tanokrom, a neighborhood of the Effia-Kwesiminstim Municipality of the Western Region, the student, simply known as Derrick, is said to have committed suicide.
According to the heartbreaking account, Derrick used a sponge to hang himself from his ceiling fan.

“I share a kitchen with him, I spoke to him yesterday morning and he was doing well. This morning, I went to the kitchen and realized his phone had been ringing without response. I became alarmed and opened his door only to see his lifeless body dangling on the ceiling fan. I raised alarm that attracted other tenants to the scene, before calling the Police,” Joana, a co-tenant, indicated.

Officers were sent to the location from the Takoradi Central Police Station. Since then, the body has been transported to the morgue at Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital while investigation is ongoing.
Some locals who inspected the location prior to the arrival of the police have suspicions about criminal action.

“I have a shop just opposite the house. I heard someone had committed suicide. I went to the room, but I think there is more to it. How could someone who has hanged himself have both hands tied at the back? When I went to the room, I saw him hanging on the ceiling fan with a sponge, but the hands were tied at the back. So, I think there is more to it than we might think”, Sammy indicated.
