A student of the Akenten Appiah-Minkah University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development known as Prosper Owusu has died after catching fire during a ritual.
Owusu, who served as Chief Priest for the Opoku Ware Hall in the University, was carrying out a fire ritual during a gathering at the campus when something went wrong.
Male Halls, a Twitter account which reports on activities on Male Halls in our Universities, revealed what happened.
“The Chief Priest of the Opoku Ware Hall in AAMUSTED has been admitted to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital after his traditional regalia caught fire during incantations as part of the hall’s activities. Let’s keep him in our prayers,” the page wrote.
In video available online of the incident, Owusu’s whole body caught on fire and he could be seen running around searching for something to extinguish the flames to no avail.
After his hospitalisation at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for close to a week, he sadly gave up the ghost on Friday.
“We are deeply saddened to inform you about the tragic loss of the Chief Priest of Opoku Ware Hall in AAMUSTED, who was involved in a fire outbreak six days ago. Unfortunately, the student passed away this afternoon at the Okomfo AnokyeTeachingHospital. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, the Traditional Council of Opoku Ware Hall and the entire school community during this difficult time.
