A final year student of Techiman Senior High School (SHS) has reportedly committed suicide after he was jilted by his girlfriend.
Sources close to the deceased student say his girlfriend, a first-year SHS student, terminated their relationship following advice from her parents.
According to friends close to the two students, the girl’s parent disapproved of their amorous relationship.
The deceased allegedly drunk a poisonous substance and was first rushed to the Opoku Agyeman Hospital.
After failing to make progress to stabilise him, doctors at the Opoku Agyeman Hospital referred the heartbroken student to Holy Family hospital on Thursday where he died.
A friend of the deceased who spoke to reporters said he is not surprised as he had threatened to take his life if he was ditched.
“The girl’s mother told her that if she doesn’t end the relationship she [mother] will not take care of her. So the girl told the guy that her parents are asking her to stop the relationship so they should break up. So the guy said if she leaves him, he will take a medicine and kill himself,” the friend said.
