- A University of Cape Coast graduate has ended his life over his 3-year unemployment predicament
- According to a Facebook user who shared the story, he was the last person to speak to the young man before his unfortunate death
A harrowing story about how a young university graduate ended his life due to the pressures that come with being unemployed has gone viral on social media.
The late university graduate, believed to be called Yussif reportedly could not take the pressure and frustration of staying at home while his mates dressed up to go to work every day.
A Facebook user by name Poko Poko who shared the sad story on his wall recounted how he had the ‘last conversation’ with Yussif the night before he took his life.
According to Poko Poko, Yussif recounted how his mother wanted him to get a job and start living an independent life.
During their conversation, Yussif hinted at ending his life but Poko Poko admitted that he should have paid more attention to his ‘depressed’ friend’s final remarks.
Poko Poko went on to reveal that Yussif refused a GHc 10 gift he was giving him because he was ‘shy’.
The Facebook user woke up at dawn to wailing only to find out that Yussif had ended his life like he hinted the night before.
