A young college student is dead after hanging himself because he failed several tests, rescue workers in Ghana said.

Winneba Police said that a 23-year-old Basic Education Student of the University of Education Winneba, committed suicide inside an incomplete building behind his hostel.

Solomon Obeng of Kumasi, was pronounced dead after hanging himself with a rope at 4:30 a.m.

According to the initial investigation, administrators of the university sent notices to students who failed three tests, to report to their academic counselors.

Friends of the deceased said that Obeng decided to end his life rather than comply with the directive.

Police said that the body was transported to Winneba Specialist and Trauma Hospital Mortuary for an autopsy.
