Grief struck the Wa campus of the University for Development Studies (UDS) on Monday morning when a final year student died after she had reportedly been struck by lightning.
The deceased, Faustina Mensah, believed to be in her late 20s and a level 400 Development Communication student of the Faculty of Integrated Development Studies, was said to be leaving for lectures in the company of her friends when the incident occurred.
The lightning preceded a heavy downpour in the Wa municipality.
Eyewitnesses told the Daily Graphic that Faustina and her two friends had just come out of her Kpaguri residence and walked a few metres away from the doorstep when the lightning suddenly struck her midsection.
