Residents of Wenchi Zongo are in shock following the murder of an senior high school female student.
The deceased, Aisha Seidu, 17 years, and a second year student of Islamic SHS in Kumasi only returned home yesterday for vacation.
Her body was discovered early this morning by relatives in a pool of blood in her room with a club suspected to have been used to hit her head with bleeding from her genitals.
Police arrived at the scene after receiving reports and rushed her to the Wenchi Methodist Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The Wenchi Municipal Command of the Ghana Police Service have launched investigation into the circumstances leading to her death.
