Suicide Attempt by a Senior High School Student After Her Taxi Driver Boyfriend Threatens To Dump Her


After her taxi driver boyfriend threatened to dump her, a seventeen-year-old Form Two student at Ajumako Bisease Senior High School in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District of the Central Region committed suicide. 

According to information gathered by EIB Network Central Regional Correspondent Yaw Boagyan, the student (name withheld), who has been in a relationship with the taxi driver since her Junior High School days, decided to drink detergent to kill herself on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, after her lover told her he’s walking out of the relationship because he’s found another woman with whom he wants to settle down.

Residents near the student’s hostel heard her screaming and begging for help, and raced to her room to find her writhing in pain and foaming at the mouth, with the material laying next her, according to the information acquired. 

She was brought to the government hospital in Ajumako, where she was treated and her condition was stabilized. 

During questioning, she admitted to attempting suicide as a result of her relationship’s problems. 

Her school authorities have filed an official report with the Ajumako District Police, and she is undergoing counseling from the Bisease Senior High School Counseling Department.
