GhPage this afternoon has received a piece of very sad news from Koforidua-Asokore in the New Juabeng North Assembly.
A 9-year-old boy, identified as Frimpong Agyei has committed suicide after his mother denied him food.
According to Peacefm’s reporter Micheal Akrofi, the mother sent her son on an errand to get bread from a friend but the child angrily declined because he was hungry and the mother denied him food.
He quickly went to his room and then took his life. Moments later, the mother sent for him to perhaps give him food but to her utmost surprise, her child had hanged himself in the room upon reaching the room.
In a police report concerning this sad news, the deceased hanged himself in his room with a sponge tied on a long crossbar in the room.
The police are on investigations to bring out their findings. The body has been taken to St Joseph Hospital Morgue.
