A Catholic priest and tutor at the Saint Victor Major Seminary at
Malshegu in the Tamale Metropolis, Reverend Father Kelvin Abakisi has
committed suicide by hanging.

According to the Public Relations Officer of the Northern Regional
Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ebenezer
Tetteh, the body of the 31-year old priest was on August 23 found
hanging from the ceiling of his sitting room when another priest from
the seminar, Rev. Fr Suom Dery visited the bungalow of the deceased.

ASP Tetteh said the police did not suspect any foul play since an
initial examination of the body did not show any sign of struggle.

He said Rev Father Abakisi was recently transferred from the
Navrongo-Bolgatanga Catholic Diocese to the Saiint Victor Major Seminary
as a tutor.

The body has since been conveyed to the Yendi Government Hospital for
preservation since all the morgues in the Tamale Metropolis are full.
