A report from Bryt FM’s Central Regional Correspondent, Eric Owusu Amponsah have it that, a 15-year-old JHS graduate has taken his own life after his Auntie took the decision to send him to learn a skill instead of enrolling him into SHS.
According to Eric’s report, Isaac Arhin well known as Yaw, committed suicide by hanging himself in his room at Gomoa Asafo in the Agona East District. His sister narrated that his late brother had an aggregate 20 in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and gained admission at Kwahu Tafo in the Eastern Region.
But his Auntie told him that she is currently not financially sound to get him enrolled in SHS so he should learn a skill. That is what might have triggered the depression leading to his untimely death.
“Yaw told me he got aggregate 20 and that, he has gotten a school at Kwahu Tafo but his aunt wanted him to learn a skill instead of continuing his education because she is not financially sound to support his education”.
“I told him, his mother had gone to Volta and that, he should exercise patience for her to return so we could deal with the issue, as I am also not in a position to support his education due to my poor health condition,” she told the reporter.
“He left the house about 6 am in the morning without informing me, so I called to find out where he has been after complaining earlier of being hungry. He told me he had gone to my aunt’s place at Nsuaem”.
“Unfortunately, I returned home to find out that he had locked the door to our room so I called him severally without any response. I then decided to look through the window with the help of a neighbor and unfortunately, I saw him hanged to death with a rope” Georgina Buabeng revealed.
