A level 400 student of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Wa Campus, Enoch Akondor, has committed suicide in Wa, the Upper West Regional capital.

The Bsc in Development Planning student, 20, took his own life for failing many of his courses and not able to graduate with his team mates.

Out of shame, he was said to have committed suicide at his hostel room on Saturday night by drinking a poisonous liquid substance only for his body to be discovered by colleagues on Sunday morning.

According to them, he is always first to wake up from the hostel but they were shocked he showed no sign as at 6:30 am prompting them to knock severally at his door but there was still no response.

The services of a carpenter from Bamahu was sought who broke into the room only to be greeted with the dead body of Enoch who prior to his death was readying himself to register courses for the trimester on Monday, January 28, 2019.

According to our sources, there was a bottle of a liquid substance suspected to be poison he drank which triggered foam around his mouth and some traces of blood at the scene.

The death of CK as he is affectionately called among his colleagues has since been reported to the Wa police.

The body has been deposited at the morgue while investigations have commenced into the matter.
