We have sighted an alleged reason why the level 400 student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) committed suicide. The suicide story was announced on social media by a Twitter user and according to the post, the guy is known as Frederick.
Per what we gathered, the guy was owing a whopping amount of GHC 200,000 and so he decided to use his GHC 60,000 to stake a bet with the hope that he will win and clear the debt.
Unfortunately for him, this decision didn’t go as planned as he ended up losing the bet and compounding his misery. He then reportedly committed suicide to escape the embarrassment he will face.

@BraKoose – And who if you have debts you kill yourself? Excuses to suicide shouldn’t be tolerated. Now has disappointed a lot of people. He made suicide won. Nobody wants be like him. Not because he owes money. Because he killed himself. Moral lesson; Don’t kill yourself if you owe!
