Listen to article

Half Assini (W/R), Sept. 30, GNA - Mr. GNA - An 18 year-old school dropout, Eric Cudjoe, from Tikobo Number One near Half Assini committed suicide on Tuesday. 

His body was found hanging in his room by his father, Mr. Samuel Cudjoe and has been deposited at the Half Assini Government Hospital.

Superintendent of Police John Ferguson Dzineku, Jomoro District Police Commander, told the GNA that the deceased dropped out of a public school about six years ago for poor academic performance and enrolled in a private school at Nuba but dropped out for the same reason.

He said when Cudjoe woke up on Tuesday and saw his former school mates going to school he went to his room and turned on his radio to a very high volume.

He said some friends went to look for him and the parents directed them to his room and did not respond when they knocked on the door. His father forced the door open and saw him hanging from a rope tied to the ceiling.

S.P. Dzineku said the Police had not made any arrests and foul play is not suspected.
