According to the grandmother, she later had report from some of the community members that her granddaughter has hanged herself.
“We don’t really know her problem. Early in the morning I gave her money for school and she told me she won’t go to school. We haven’t done anything bad to her. I was in the house and I was informed that she has hanged herself. We went to the scene and we found out that she is no more alive” she said.
