His uncle, John Agyekum confirmed the unfortunate news on Adom News Sunday said the entire community and the household was thrown into a state of shock.

He explained that, his nephew who is a final Junior High School (JHS) student hanged himself with a sponge tied to a wooden hanger in his room.

Mr. Agyekum noted that, the deceased who has lost both parents did not show any sign of depression to trigger his action.

Mr. Agyekum said they reported the matter to the police who have conveyed the body to St. Francis hospital morgue for autopsy.
