The first daughter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Akim central constituency of the Ashanti region, Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi, has committed suicide at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Adwoa Agyarkwa Anyimadu- Antwi hanged herself to death in her hostel room, according to her colleague course mates who are also pursuing petrochemical engineering.
The 18-year-old first year student was found dead on Friday morning in her hostel room with a rope fastened to her neck and hanging from the ceiling.
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 deceased left behind said ‘am sorry to disappoint you mummy and daddy for not being the girl you want me to be’.
According to sources, the school authorities have informed the family about the incident and messengers were sent to Parliament in Accra to also inform the father.
Majority of the students are saddened by the situation.
Her body has since been deposited at KNUST hospital in Kumasi.
