KNUST student commits suicide over exam results

The 18-year-old first-year student was found dead on Friday morning in her hostel room with a rope fastened to her neck and hanging from the ceiling.


Adwoa Agyarkwa Anyimadu- Antwi is the first daughter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Akim central constituency of the Ashanti region, Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi.

According to some of her colleagues, she hanged herself to death in her hostel room.

It is unclear what might have triggered the suicide but some students close to her say that she failed one of her courses and was scolded by her parents.

She left a note behind which read ‘am sorry to disappoint you mummy and daddy for not being the girl you want me to be’.

Her family has been informed about the incident.

Her body has since been deposited at KNUST hospital in Kumasi.
