Reverend Isaac Owusu-Bempah said the spiritual angle should be looked at in finding the cause of the suicide cases.

In an interview on Kumasi-based Abusua FM, he said "Most of the time many forget that there could be spiritual causes to people committing suicide, we forget that the Bible records an instance where a man brought his son to Jesus to heal. The boy when he was under spiritual attack threw himself into fire and sometimes water wanting to kill himself.

"Suicide is caused by a spirit, when one is possessed to commit suicide the person is unable to control him or herself, and that is what happened to Judas when he betrayed Jesus. He ended up committing suicide, let us also look at the spiritual angle to this problem of needless deaths so we pray fervently to end it."
