Ghana: Upsurge in suicide rate troubles community residents in Volta region

Residents of Afiadenyigba in Keta Municipality in the Volta Region, have expressed worry over what they say is increasing suicide cases in the area.

At least, three out of five people who attempted suicide lost their lives between October and November 2019, JoyNews Correspondent, Ivy Sertorjie reported.

Residents fear the number could go up as little is done to investigate and find solutions to the menace which they also suspect may have a spiritual cause.

A man who identifies himself as ‘Kalusha’ lost his nephew who was a teacher to suicide at the end of October. He is among those who believe suicide has a spiritual link.
