12yr old boy hangs himself to death after church service

By on

A 12 year old boy has committed suicide at Assin Bereku in the Assin North district of the Central region.

The death of Kwame Adu on Sunday afternoon shook the entire community as many residents wondered what might have prompted once a lively and lovely child to take his own life.

What shocked residents the most was the fact that the victim had just returned from church with his mother barely an hour ago.

Kwame Adu, who worshiped with the Christ Apostolic Church at Assin Bereku, was said to have actively participated in a church programme in the morning.

According to eyewitnesses, the victim was with the mother in the house on March 18 when he went inside the room. He kept long inside the room but the mother thought he was taking a nap only find him later  in the room  hanged with a sponge around his neck.

Some of his church members who were still in shock shared some fond memories of Kwame Adu, noting he never exhibited any sign that he was going through any challenge both physically or psychologically.

“All the time he was seen in a good mood,” one recalled, “he was a good Sunday school boy who loved to participate in church activities.”.

The body has since been deposited  at the Assin Fosu St Francis Xavier Hospital for autopsy .
