Tragedy struck in the South Campus of the University of Education in Winneba, Ghana as a 100 level student was found dead in an uncompleted building.
Solomon Obeng, said to be a Basic Education student, took his own life on February 14, Valentine’s day, because he had gotten 3Es in his examination.
The deceased was found hanging in the building and it is believed that he committed suicide.
According to reports:
According to the University’s regulations, obtaining 3Es in an examination meant an outright dismissal after grades have been displayed on the school’s notice boards.
Some students who could not fathom why the deceased committed suicide considering the fact that ‘the results could be manipulated’ told 233 Live News the University management was to blame for the unfortunate happening.
“Why should someone’s world come to an end because he is unable to get 50% in an exams?” a student, Nana Kwasi Frimpong asked.
