As Kuulpeeps.com has been reporting all of last week, three University of Ghana students lost their lives within the space of five days.
Though the deaths were unrelated, it was very chilling and it sent a lot of students talking and developing all sorts of conspiracy theories as to the cause of the three deaths and why they were occurring.
Kuulpeeps.com interviewed students of the University of Ghana for their reactions and this is what some of the students told us.

It’s unfathomable and I think something should be done about it. Probably cleansing or pacifying the any angered god.
Lorinda Ansong, Spanish and Linguistics
I think it’s very awful and sad. I don’t really know what’s happening but I think as a school we need to pray
Mary Opoku Dufie, Political Science
It is very appalling. It is making students horrified and unnecessarily cautious, which can affect studies especially the level 400s..May the lost souls Rest In Peace
Nana Bemah, Political Science
It’s suspicious and very questionable
Mavis Agbemenyah, Theatre Arts
These deaths were so unfortunate, at first I thought they were just rumours, then I came to a realization that they were real, I panicked at first. It’s not that I have never heard any death case but the uniqueness of these ones were that they were happening continuously within a short period of time. It has made me so conscious about what I do and how I live on campus.
Joan Bortey, History and Theatre Arts
Hmmm, I can’t think far. It’s a little scary. But God is alive and we will console ourselves with the knowing that God gives and takes.
It’s extremely sad and painful you know, but as a Christian, what I will say is that God knows best. We have to be very careful, vigilant and stand firm in our faith because these deaths might be spiritual
Dorcas Asiedu, Political Science
Well it’s a bit worrisome. This semester has really recorded a lot of deaths on campus.
Anthony Abeiku Essien, Computer Science
Well, I don’t see it as normal. But I can’t explain. I don’t know why but it’s getting scary on campus.
Emmanuel Yeboah, Economics and Linguistics
It’s sad that we are losing such young lives. The school and individuals needs to do something about it
