“So I asked him, so you being a teacher, what have you done about it? Haven’t you heard of what happened in Kumasi? It’s all over the airwaves, Connect FM has even reported,” the mother said.
“But he responded that Nathaniel’s friends had sent him to the hospital”,
Adding that, she called her son again, and he told her that he had been given paracetamol at the hospital for the headache.
She further revealed that her son called her on Tuesday and informed her that he was finally coming home, but passed away after she took him to the hospital.
“When he got here, I sent him to the hospital and they immediately put him on oxygen and other machines. He passed away on the dawn of Wednesday,” the grieving mother added.
The body of the deceased student has since been deposited at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital morgue for autopsy.
This comes just a week after a final year student of KNUST Senior High School, Richard Sam, also died.
