The death of a first-year Chemical Engineering student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has left some students in fear as information trickle in over the cause of her death.
Adwoa Agyarkowaa Anyimadu-Antwi, 18, was found hanged in her Independence Hall room on Friday, February 24. Though the cause of death is yet to be established, many suspect suicide.
This stems from a note found in the room of the deceased, who was the daughter of Asante-Akyem Central Member of Parliament.
The note read: ‘Sorry mummy and daddy for not been (sic) the girl you want me to be.’
Some explained the whole incident to be a fallout from the recent academic results posted by the Academic Board of the university.
Reports say she hanged herself as a result of failing one subject. However, 3news.com sources on campus say the cause of death may be spiritual. They claim the deceased was a very brilliant student and did not show any sign of being bogged down by the results.
The sources say she has not looked depressed since the results were released a couple of days ago.
The incident is under investigation. Roommates of the deceased have been relocated as the room has been under lock since the incident.
They are also undergoing counseling to minimise the effect they may suffer from the trauma.
