A Ghanaian student identified as Joseph Amoako who is studying at the Liaoning Shihua University in China has reportedly died from injuries sustained as he attempted to scale over school’s wall after arriving late from town.
According to adomfmonline, Amoako, stepped out with friends and returned to the school drunk.
However, the school regulations notes that anyone who returned after 11 pm is denied entry into the school at the gate.
Joseph allegedly tried to sneak in by climbing a tree to gain access to the school’s premises.
While climbing the tree, he fell off and sustained ‘major injuries’ injuries that required he undergoes a brain surgery as his senses became temporarily dysfunctional.
Reports from China say his fellow Ghanaian students tried to raise some funds to support his hospital bills but Amoako died not long after.
Below was a notice of ‘call for support’ by his fellow Ghanaian students:
A CCTV footage that has been made available to the Ghanaian student-community in China and in the possession of adomonline.com from the school appears to confirm the fall from a tree of an individual.
However, a lady identified as Stephanie Amoako who claims to be a relative of the Ghanaian student has debunked claims that Joseph Amoako is dead.
In other news, a recent photo has surfaced online of Ghana’s highest serving convict, Raymond Ayittey, who became famed as Atta Ayi owing to being one of the country’s most wanted criminals.
According to Pulse Ghana, on February, 2005, Atta Ayi was arrested following a tip-off by his niece for a different crime he had committed. And in 2005, Atta Ayi was sentenced to 160 years in prison with hard labour on the charges of robbery and conspiracy to rob by Supreme Court Judge, Justice Baffoe-Bonnie.
Currently, Ataa Ayi is serving 160 years at the Ankaful Maximum security prisons in Cape Coast, Central Region.
