Student nurse commits suicide at Mampong Nursing and Midwifery Training School

A 21year old Bertha Frimpong of the Midwifery Nursing and Training School at Mampong in Ashanti Region has  died as a result of taking poisonous substance believed to be DDT at her hostel in the campus.

Early hours of Thursday morning around 1:00am, her room mates heard screaming voice from her bed and they quickly run to the bed and saw her lying down with foam coming out from  the mouth.They took her outside and called the authorities of the school. She confirmed to them that she had taken poison, they rush her to Mampong Government Hospital. Hours later she was referred to KATH where later in the day she was pronounced dead by doctors.

Police proceeded to the school where a jotter containing write ups was retrieved. In the write ups she ask for forgiveness from God and those around her thus the family and friends for her action. I quote her .”LORD I DON’T DESERVE TO EAT THIS FRUIT BECAUSE OF MY UNGRATEFUL.
Chief Supt. Wisdom Lavoe the Divisional Police Commander told the press.

Her reason for committing the suicide is that she doesn’t like the program she is pursuing  in the school being  NAC (Nursing Assistant Certificate) which she used to complain always according to the mother and some closed friends.

She tried this action last year 2016 but a little voice whispered into her ears to stop. All these revelations are found in the jotter.

The body of Bertha Frimpong has been deposited at KATH mortuary.

According to our investigations she was sent to Teacher Training College later she stopped  doing the program claiming that her qualification is above that. Later on the parents sent her to Nursing Training School at Mampong where she has committed the suicide.

She was a member of Mampong Pentecost church and a committed Christian. Bertha was the last born of her parents.
