A 9-year-old boy has committed suicide at Koforidua-Asokore in the New Juabeng North Assembly.
The 9-year-old boy, identified as Frimpong Agyei has committed suicide after his mother reportedly refused to give him food.
According to a report by a Peace FM correspondent in Koforidua, the mother refused to give her son food after he refused to run an errand for her.
He quickly went to his room and then took his life. Moments later, the mother sent for him to perhaps give him food but to her utmost surprise, her child had hanged himself in the room upon reaching the room.
The body has since been deposited at the morgue of St. James Hospital in Koforidua.
