SHARE recently published that a final year student at the University for Development Studies (UDS), Wa campus in the Upper West Regional capital has committed suicide.

Enoch Akondor

Enoch not being able to stand the shame of not graduating with his colleagues, committed suicide on Saturday at his hostel room by drinking a poisonous substance.

He was later found by his colleagues on Sunday morning in his hostel after several attempts to reach him failed.

However, we have sighted his last Whatsapp chat where his friends were encouraging him that no problem is bigger than God.

They advise him to keep trusting and God will do the rest but It’s rather unfortunate he still had to end his life.
