Information reaching Ghnewsbag from the Oti region has it that an 11-year-old class three pupil has hanged himself to death at Dambai.
The class three pupil of Dambai College of Education Demonstration School known as Isaac Essumang was found dead hanging on a tree close to their residence in Dambai.
Isaac’s mother had earlier in the day asked him to join her to church but the deceased refused; claiming he had something else to do. Only for his mother to return from church to meet his corpse.
According to a close neighbor identified as Prince, he was with Isaac before the incident. The deceased came and asked him to let him watch a telenovela on UTV but he was by then tidying up his room. So the deceased went away promising to be back when he’s done cleaning up.
He heard nothing about the deceased again until he heard some people screaming. Upon reaching the scene, he saw Isaac Essumang hanging.
Isaac’s demise adds up to three successive cases involving hanging in Ghana within a space of three days. It was initially Leticia Kyereh Pinaman of Miracle Senior High School in Sunyani, then a female teacher by name Catherine in Assin Fosu and now this.
