A 9-year-old boy, Frimpong Agyei Kofi has taken his own life at Koforidua Asokore in the New-Juaben Municipal District in the Eastern Region.

The young boy hanged himself with the sponge he used to bath with.

According to an eyewitness, the deceased committed the act after he refused a directive from her mother to buy bread at a nearby shop on Tuesday.

Young Kofi angrily entered the room which no one knew what he has planned to do.

His death came as a shock to many and even the parents, what prompted him (Kofi) to take his own life.

Narrating the sad event, Kofi’s mother asked her other son to check up what his brother is doing in the room.

The little brother came back to report that Kofi has defecated on himself which made the mother suspicious and rushed into the room to verify the report. The mother entered the room to see the Lifeless Body of Kofi.

Kofi’s father, Eric Frimpong, was quickly contacted to be informed of what has happened.

The Eastern Regional Police Command has confirmed the sad incident indicating that body has been sent to the St. Joseph’s Hospital.
