Information reaching YEN.com.gh indicates that a student of the University of Ghana is feared dead after falling off the fourth floor of the Mensah Sarbah Hall Annex A building.
The student, identified as Wahab Abdulai, is said to be a former resident of the hall but was currently an illegal resident, popularly known as percher because he was not registered as a resident of the hall.
The incident is said to have taken place at about 1:45 am on Friday, April 23, 2021.
According to a report filed by the campus-based RadioUniverse, Wahab is reported to have jumped over fears of being sacked by hall authorities.
According to an eyewitness report, the registered occupants of the room Wahab was perching heard a bang on the door and assumed it was hall authorities who were hunting for illegal occupants.
“The victim was asked to hide in the balcony until the assumed porters leave. Suddenly, they heard a loud crashing sound and rushed to see what had happened then they found the boy lying on the ground floor,” the eyewitness added.
The victim has reportedly been admitted at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after receiving first aid treatment at the Legon Hospital.
Dean of Students, Prof. Godfred Bokpin, however, has called for calm among students while investigations are being carried out.
In other news, a Ghanaian taxi driver whose name is withheld has confessed that he is currently being haunted after spending GHc1,200 that one of his passengers left inside his car.
Speaking on HappyFM's confessions programme called Boneka, the driver indicated that he tried to keep the money for the owner but it appeared as though enough time had elapsed.
According to him, he waited for one year to see whether anyone would come to him asking about their lost money, but nothing of the sort ever happened.
