KNUST: 18-yr old MP’s daughter commits suicide after failing one of her courses

The daughter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Akyem central constituency Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Adwoa Agyarkwa Anyimadu- Antwi has hanged herself to death.

The 18 -year old first year chemical engineering student was found dead on Friday morning in her hostel room with a rope hanging her neck.

It is unclear what might have triggered the suicide but sources at KNUST campus say she failed one of her courses and couldn’t bear the shame hence the suicide.

A note the brilliant deceased left behind states ‘am sorry to disappoint you mummy and daddy’.

According to sources, the school authorities have informed the family about the incident where messengers were sent to Parliament in Accra to also inform the father.

Majority of the students are saddened by the situation.

The body has been deposited at KNUST hospital in Kumasi.
