The Rev Fr Kelvin Abakisi, a 31-year-old Catholic priest and a tutor at the Saint Victor?s Major Seminary at Malshegu in the Tamale Metropolis has committed suicide by hanging.


Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ebenezer Tetteh, Public Relations Officer of the Northern Regional Police Command, told the GNA in Tamale on Monday that Rev. Fr Suom Dery also of the Saint Victors Major Seminary visited the bungalow of the deceased on August 23 and found him hanging from the ceiling of his sitting room.

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 and conveyed the body to the Yendi Government Hospital?for preservation since all the morgues in the Tamale Metropolis are full.

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