A 33-year-old female administrator of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Ama Gyamfia, committed suicide on Tuesday evening, less than 24 hours after her husband had informed her of his final decision to end their two-year-old marriage.
Apparently hurt by the husband’s decision, Gyamfia entered her room, on the pretext of going to pray to God.
But 30 minutes later, she was found hanging on a rope tied to the roof of the room in the family house near the Siloam Junction at Kwadaso in Kumasi.
Neighbours expressed shock at the death of the young woman, said to be a graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
The Sofoline police confirmed the incident and said the remains of Gyamfia had been deposited at the morgue at KATH for autopsy.
The acting District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Mr Edward Jones Afutu, told the Daily Graphic in Kumasi yesterday that the police were investigating the case to determine the next line of action.
He would not give further details but said the police were looking for Gyamfia’s husband, whose name was not given, to assist in investigations.
Neighbours, however, told the Daily Graphic that Gyamfia, who was nursing a 10-month-old baby from her marriage, had not been her normal self since her husband started threatening divorce some few weeks ago.
Last Tuesday, the husband, who had travelled outside Kumasi, called her on phone to inform her that she should get herself ready for divorce immediately he returned to Kumasi.
According to the residents, the woman became perplexed and started moving from one house to another in the evening.
All attempts by relatives to convince her to take it cool proved futile.
On the fateful day, Gyamfia, who was then cuddling her baby, handed it over to her mother and entered her room, with the excuse that she was going to pray.
She locked herself up in the room and, after about 30 minutes when she had not come out, an attempt was made by relatives to go inside to find out what was happening.
On realising that the door had been locked from inside, they forced it open, only to see the woman hanging dead on a rope.
