Sad: A 14 year old class five pupil dies from hunger at Assin Dwaso in the Central Region_Peace Fm.

A 14 year old class five pupil has allegedly died from hunger at Assin Dwaso in the Central Region of Ghana. The young boy whose formal name is Emmanuel Gyankye is schooling at Assin Fosu Anglican School.

The late Emmanuel lives with Sister Akos who is his biological mother at Bungalow, a suburb of Assin Fosu. But the father, Mr Kwame Apotee stays at Assin Dwaso. Both towns are located in the Assin Central constituency.

The sad incident happened on Saturday 20th February 2021 when the young boy visited the father at Assin Dwaso to fetch some foodstuffs to feed himself in the subsequent week. The father gathered all the necessary foodstuffs for Emmanuel.

The boy was very hungry so he attempted to pluck some coconut fruits to satisfy his hunger. Unfortunately, he fell from the coconut tree and became weak.

The boy was rushed to St. Francis Xavier Hospital at Assin Fosu but was thereafter referred to Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. Unfortunately, he died at the Okomfo Anokye Teaching hospital in Kumasi.

The police are conducting investigations into the matter to find out what actually killed the 14 year old school boy.
