Colleagues of the late Sarah Yenuloom, a student of the School of Hygiene in Tamale, who died last week during a float to mark the school’s sanitation week, believe the deceased had a premonition of her death before the incident occurred.

According to some of them, who pleaded anonymity, during an interaction with this reporter at Gurugu, a suburb of Tamale, they had been warned by some police personnel not to divulge information to anyone on the matter since it could affect investigations.

They, however, described Sarah as a cheerful person, but said she started behaving strangely before the unfortunate incident occurred.
They said on the eve of the float, the deceased shared her personal belongings such as shoes, bracelets and a wrist watch among her roommates.

Her colleagues further said she reconciled with almost all the students she was not been on talking terms with, and prepared tea for some of them.

When they asked the deceased about her action, she was alleged to have replied “what happens if after sharing my belongings you hear that I am no more?”

“She even went to the extent of giving out the promise ring she was wearing to one of the students,” they claimed.

Some other information making the rounds on campus was that the mother of the deceased, who is said to be residing in Techiman, in the Brong Ahafo Region, was alleged to have had a dream, warning of an impending fatal accident that claimed her daughter’s life.

Her colleagues said the mother of the deceased, therefore, sent a word to her daughter not to come out on the day of the float as she (the mother) was seeking divine intervention with the help of a man of God.

Sarah died when the vehicle which they were using for a float run over her at Kanvili, a suburb of Tamale. She was pronounced dead on arrival at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.

The deceased in her mid-20s was a second-year student, who had only two months to complete her course and start her practical training.
