A female student of the University of Ghana was found dead in the early hours of Wednesday, reportedly having fallen from the fourth floor of her hostel.
Akuafo Hall porters found her dead body on the floor in the early hours of today, lying in a pool of blood with her skull damaged.
She was pronounced dead on arrival at the University Hospital.
According to Citi Fm, the girl is a final year student, resident at the hall.
One of the porters who found the body spoke with the Accra based radio station about the incident.
“Around 4.45am we were at post and we heard a sound from outside, so my partner and I went outside to check what was happening but we didn’t see anything so we thought it might have been a car so we returned to post. Later, some students from the first floor came back to tell us they had seen a body lying down on the floor. So we quickly rushed there to see and it was true. We called the Legon security and the police and they came for her body.” he said.
“As at now we don’t know what may have caused this. She is now in the hospital. We saw her lying down and bleeding from her head. Such cases involve investigations so we didn’t want to touch her. We could see that the head was broken.”
At the moment, it’s unclear what caused the incident – whether it was an accident or an act of suicide.
