A 21-year-old final year student of Techiman Senior High School is reported to have committed suicide after taking a substance suspected to be organophosphate poison on Monday night.
According to sources close to the deceased, his first year girlfriend with name Cristabel asked for the end of their relationship after her parents told her to end it.
One of his friends who spoke on anonymity said “he told her he would commit suicide if she leaves him and so we were not surprised when we heard the news”.
His final update on his Facebook page which was posted at about 8:31pm on Monday reads “meet me in heaven…… #gud baiiiiiiii”.
The status is believed to be updated moments before he took the poison that saw him hospitalized for five days before his demise.
He was first rushed to the Opoku Agyeman hospital before he was later referred to the Holy Family hospital on Thursday.
Dr. Ernest Ameyaw, the Medical Director of the Hospital confirmed the incident, adding that “the boy died as a result of a suspected organophosphate poison which is weedicide and that led to multiple organ failure leading to his death”.
His body is currently at the Hospital’s morgue.
