Family of the boy who fell from the 4th floor of St Peter's Mission School suspects foul play

The death of a 14-year-old British national who allegedly fell from the fourth floor of the dormitory at St. Peter’s Mission school in Ogbojo, Adentan Municipality, has sparked worry, with the family suspecting foul play.

According to school officials, the event occurred on the school grounds at 12 a.m. on Monday, May 15, and he was confirmed dead after being transferred to the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC).

According to the family, the medical professionals at the University of Ghana Medical Centre reported the event to the police, citing the lack of a police escort during the boy’s transfer to the hospital.

A relative of the victim narrated that “On Tuesday, we received a call in the afternoon around 12 noon from the school authorities that we needed to come to the Legon Hospital that the boy is sick and so his stepfather went with the grandmother but upon arrival, the hospital authorities said the boy was already dead. The school authorities told a lie that the only relative of the boy was the grandmother who was sick and on admission. They opened the body bag for the grandmother to see, and she saw his leg swollen and a big cut under his armpit. We want the police to investigate the issue, and we are trusting them to do diligent work to find out what actually killed the boy”.

Meanwhile, Moses Adu Gyima, the Proprietor of St. Peter’s Mission School, told Citi News in an exclusive interview that the youngster had violated sleeping hours, created disturbances by knocking on doors on the fourth floor, and then leapt out the window.

“I was called on Tuesday by the boarding staff of the school and told me that a boy had fallen and was rushed to the school’s clinic for first aid and then rushed to the UGMC Hospital and… so we were hoping that everything will go on well, so we can have a very good story, but we were informed of the death of the victim and the police asked us to come with a relative of the victim.

“I was told the staff had gone out to find out the reason for the boy being hyper that night because they heard him banging on doors, and before they could come out, they heard a loud fall after the boy had disengaged a window and jumped.”

According to Citi News sources, the concerned family has since filed an official complaint with the British High Commission in Ghana as well as the police headquarters.
