Disturbing video of KNUST student attempting suicide causes stir

A student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, identified as Kwadwo Asare Konadu Gyamfi, attempted suicide earlier today.

The video shows the student hanging by his fingertips from the windows of one of the high-rise rooms at the Brunei Complex.

Kwadwo Asare attempted to jump off but apparently lost his nerve and continued hanging onto the windows until he was saved.

He’s apparently in stable condition now.

He left behind a harrowing suicide note explaining his reasons for his attempted suicide.

According to him, he hasn’t been able to sleep properly in two years and claimed to have been visited by a spirit.

This is a student clearly suffering a mental episode, probably due to too much stress and other factors! One can only hope he’s provided the help he’s needed!

Watch his suicide attempt below…plus an attached tweet outlining his suicide note!

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is a public University of Ghana focusing on science and technology.

The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is the first public university established in the country, as well as the largest university in the Kumasi Metropolis and in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

KNUST has its roots in the plans of Agyeman Prempeh I, a ruler of the Ashanti Kingdom, to establish a university in Kumasi as part of his drive towards the modernization of his Ashanti kingdom.

This plan never came to fruition due to the clash between British empire expansion and the desire of King Prempeh I to preserve his Ashanti kingdom’s independence. However, his younger brother and successor, King Asantehene Agyeman Prempeh II, continued with this vision upon ascending to the Golden Stool in 1935.
