Police in Bekwai have commenced investigations into the death of a final year student of the Oppong Memorial Senior High School at Kokofu in the Ashanti Region.
The deceased, 21-year-old Richard Kofi Appiah, who left the school for the town, was attacked and stabbed on his way by some unknown assailants over the weekend.
He died shortly after he was rushed to the Bekwai Government Hospital.
The Municipal Chief Executive for Bekwai, Kwaku Kyei Baffour, who described the incident as disturbing, says he trusts the police to bring the perpetrators to book.
“I learned that the guy is a final year student who went to town around that time and this happened. It is unfortunate. If you know the terrain of the school, it is a very vast land. We need to encourage the students to stay on campus and be serious about their books,” he added.
The mother of the deceased, Florence Boahemaa, wants the police to ensure persons behind the act are made to face the law.
“I want those who killed him to be arrested,” she said.
