Asante Akim Central MP Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi has said he is puzzled by the suicide of his first daughter Adwoa Anyimadu-Antwi.

The 18-year-old petrochemical engineering student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) left a suicide note apologising to her parents for not living up to their standard.

Her body was found hanging by a rope in her hostel on campus.

The NPP legislators told colleague MPs who visited him at his East Legon residence to commiserate with him on Tuesday, 28 February: “As of now, I have tried hard to find answers to the puzzle as to why my daughter could die in such a tragic manner because we provided everything for her and made sure she was always happy.

“She was my best friend.

“One thing I have learnt from the death of my daughter is that this unfortunate incident could happen to anybody or any family and that as parents we need to constantly pray for our children in school so that such things do not befall them,” adding that he was completely shocked by the news, reports.

The delegation of MPs was led by First Deputy Speaker Joe Osei-Owusu, who represented Speaker Prof Mike Oquaye.
