Zabzugu: Police probes circumstances under which a teacher ‘hanged herself’

The police in Zabzugu in the Zabzugu district of the Northern Region, have opened investigations into the circumstances that led a female teacher to take her own life.

The deceased is said to be a newly posted teacher, teaching in the Tatale Sanguli district but stays in Zabzugu.

According to her friends, they realized that it was unusual for her to be out of her room in the morning, and so they called her phone several times, but she was not answering.

This raised some suspicion and that prompted them to break into her room only to find her dead.

Her friends who also reside in the area said they believe she took her life using a sponge.

“This morning, we didn’t see her and we kept calling but she was not answering. So we became suspicious and when we entered her room, we found her dead,” one of her friends who did not disclose her name said.
