By on


A 16-year-old girl, Barbara Asante, has allegedly committed suicide at New Tafo in the East Akim municipality of the Eastern Region.

The lifeless body of Barbara was discovered by her mother in their kitchen Tuesday – which was a holiday for school children following the Independence Day celebration the day before – when she was not found in the house.

Sources indicated that the teenager had complained that she was seeing strange creatures trailing her, and it was believed that that compelled her to kill herself.

According to the sources, the mother said she was looking for her daughter to help her cook for the family but she couldn’t be found, adding that she (mother) decided to go to the kitchen and cook by herself when she saw the body hanging.

DAILY GUIDE gathered that the case was reported to the New Tafo police, and that investigation had commenced into it.

Meanwhile, the body has been deposited at the New Tafo Government Hospital pending post-mortem.
