Ashanti Region: Nursing Student Commits Suicide


File Image has gathered that a 21-year old female student of the Asante Mampong Nursing and Midwifery Training School in the Ashanti Region has reportedly committed suicide.

Bertha Frimpong, the deceased who was confirmed dead on Thursday at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) is alleged to have drunk a poisonous substance.

She was rushed to the Mampong Government Hospital by her room mates who saw her moaning with pain after returning from lectures on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.

The deceased who was transferred to KATH where she died is said to have committed suicide because she was not allowed to do General Nursing programme but a different programme which she didn’t like.

The body has since been deposited at the mortuary.

School authorities are tight-lipped about the incident.

The police have launched investigations into the matter.
