According Daily Guide reports, the deceased, Yaa Antwiwah, a primary six pupil, met her untimely death after she consumed some concoction in an attempt to terminate the pregnancy.

Antwiwah was said to have seek the assistance of some friends who supposedly prepared the concoction for her to abort the pregnancy.

According to the report Antwiwah, after consuming the alleged concoction, started bleeding and shouted for help.

The deceased was quickly rushed to the Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi by her auntie in the house at that moment.

Medical Officials revealed that the concoction had destroyed the organs in her stomach and she need blood transfusion, but she passed away before the blood was brought for transfusion.

Some of the residents at Nchaban also alleged that the guy, who impregnated her, might have administered the abortion drug to the innocent girl.

They said the girl later became indisposed and that her parents, who did not know about the matter, took it to be ordinary malaria and gave her some drugs.

It is believed that those drugs worsened the situation. However all attempt to get her parent to speak on the matter proves fatal.

However, the Shama District Chief Executive,  Enoch Kojo Appiah told Daily Guide that he was yet to verify the story.

Meanwhile, a friend of the deceased, who pleaded anonymity, told the paper that the deceased was her only friend. According to the friend, she was not aware that Antwiwah was pregnant.

She claimed the deceased might have sought the assistance of someone, who prepared the supposed concoction for her to terminate the pregnancy.

“I learnt she bled a little but the entire foetus was not destroyed."

The saddened friend of the deceased could not hold back her tears and wonder why Antwiwah kept the issue confidential.
