Autopsy: Aburi Girls student died of cerebrospinal meningitis

The 15-year-old student tragically passed away on Monday, 5 February, 2024, after complaining of severe stomach pains

The autopsy results of the late first-year student of Aburi Girls Senior High School, Stacy Okyere, have established that she died of cerebrospinal meningitis, an acute inflammation of the membranes covering the brain and the spinal cord.

Information gathered indicates that the post-mortem was conducted at the Ghana Police Hospital and additional tests were run at the Ghana Standards Authority.

Nora Danso, the elder sister of the deceased, disclosed in an interview that the family expects to receive the hard copy of the report on Monday, 26 February.

”…Yes, the report has been endorsed, today we will get the report itself…the hard copy. The CID officer said that after endorsement, they need to run several copies. The school needs a copy, the Ghana Police Service needs a copy and then they will bring the original copy to the family. So they need to run all these copies before they hand over the original to us,” she said.

Danso further disclosed that the burial ceremony of the late student will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at Ablekuma in Accra.

The 15-year-old student tragically passed away on Monday, 5 February, 2024, after complaining of severe stomach pains.

It was earlier reported that Stacy died as a result of medical negligence by the school nurse, who reportedly accused her of repeatedly feigning illness.

Tragically, by the time she was rushed to the hospital, she had passed away.
