The Easter holidays that ended on the weekend have brought sad stories. There have been reports of two teenagers who have died in two different regions mysteriously.
Ghana has since been in a state of shock and many have started asking questions on what could be happening in the country.
The first teenager who died in a sad circumstance was the eleven-year-old boy whose name has only been given as Ishmael.
The young boy died after his two friends murdered him for ritual purposes at Kasoa in the Central Region of Ghana.
The two murderers who are also teenagers are alleged to have killed their friend on command of an unknown fetish priest.
They were paraded before the court and have been remanded in Police custody to reappear on a later date. The entire Kasoa community and Ghana at large are currently in a state of surprise after the news broke with many asking what could have gone through the minds of the two teenagers.
Questions have been raised on the kind of training modern children to go through at their homes to warrant such a mindset.
The other teenager who has also lost her life is Efua Jamila Tawiah. She was selling eggs beside the main Ntankoful highway in Takoradi when a Police officer knocked her down with his vehicle.
The young girl died instantly with her body being mutilated beyond recognition. The vehicle of the police officer who was speeding also burnt beyond repairs.
The Officer who also sustained injuries is currently receiving treatment. But the Police Command in the Western Region has promised to investigate the issue and update the public.
The deaths of these two teenagers have become the talk of the town with many wondering what could be happening in the country.
The deaths of these young teenagers could have been easily avoided. The Police officer could have obeyed the road traffic regulations by slowing down on his speed.
On the other hand, the Kasoa teenagers could have spared their friend’s life if they had not inculcated the love for early riches.
The Police, parents, and Ghanaians, in general, must all play their roles in protecting the lives of the young ones.
