A 17-year-old male student of the Sokode Senior High School in the Volta Regional Capital, Ho, has died after being struck by lightning.

The deceased, identified as Emmanuel Dorli, was reportedly hit by a thunder strike while in the company of two female colleagues.

According to, the incident occurred during a downpour in the late hours of Monday.

The news website reports that the two female friends of the deceased who were also affected by the lightning are currently on admission at the Ho Teaching Hospital.

Dorli, who is said to be a coconut hawker, a business he does after school hours and on weekends, was going about his daily business when his unfortunate death occurred.

His mother narrated that her son was selling coconuts at his normal spot after school while she was at work, only to be called later and informed about his shocking death.

It is said that, per tradition, the deceased’s corpse has to remain at the spot where he was struck until traditional prayers are offered before it can be taken to the mortuary.

Meanwhile, one of the residents of the area is reported as having attributed the incident to a possible spiritual battle that may have ensued between the deceased and someone.

“These things are spiritual and it happens only when someone is behind it and the victim might have had issues with someone who decided to go the spiritual way,” the resident said.

It is reported that before the incident, the deceased had had an argument with a competitor whom he warned to desist from competing with him.

It remains unclear if that has any link with the incident that led to the death of Dorli.

It appears in the quest to escape poverty, most people of Zimbabwe have resorted to selling their toes which have a huge price tag of more than $40,000 for the big toe with the smaller one going in for $20,000.

This broke the internet recently and many people have reacted to the menace going on in that Southern African country.

This Ghanaian lady has taken to Facebook to share her unhappiness with regards to her former boyfriend. She claims she has had 72 abortions for the guy but in the end, the boyfriend got married to her best friend instead.

Identified as Nana Hemaa Stella on Facebook, the lady narrated how her beau ditched her after risking her life to terminate several pregnancies for him.

According to Stella, who was head of over heels in love with her boyfriend, she performed 72 abortions while they were still together.

However, he overlooked all of these sacrifices and jilted her.

She added that after the relationship hit a rough path, he proceeded to start a new chapter with her best friend who was a virgin.

The two are now happily married and she is still reeling in her shadows of pain.

As Dr. Kwame Nkrumah made us understand, at long last, the battle has ended. The Champions League saw its finality yesterday and in the end, Real Madrid emerge victorious with a goal from Vinicius Junior making all the difference.

In all, the spectacular display from Thaibaut Courtois became the talking point after the match. He really displayed some incredible goal-keeping skills that saw real Madrid keeping a clean sheet against the threats of Mo Salah and Mane.

He won the Man of the match of the tournament putting all doubts aside as he cements his position in winning the best goalkeeper for the tournament.

We today going to have a look at the 20 most expensive universities in the world and you will certainly be amazed at some of the ridiculous prices these universities cost when it comes to tuition.

Let therefore have a look;

20. UCL (University College London), UK

Cost: $25,000

If you’re looking for a good university in the UK then UCL might be an option for you.

Founded in 1826; UCL caters for both home-based and EU students and offers a variety of exceptional courses and facilities.

Its main campus is located in the Bloomsbury area of London, and the university has around 41,500 students and 15,100 members of staff.

Yes, it’s one of the most expensive colleges in the world, however, it does offer bursaries and scholarships.

It appears the only solace Manchester United supporters will take from their disappointing season is the fact that their team still was able to make some gains in their finances after losing out on a top 4 finish.

According to report, United’s total revenue for the first three months of 2022 was £152.8 million ($192 million), up 29.2 per cent from £118.3 million compared to the same period last year.

The club earned an additional £34.1 million in matchday revenue in this period, with the coronavirus pandemic having limited matchday revenue to £1.6 million in the third quarter of 2021.

With May, 28 being the grand decider for the Champions League. The Spanish giants look more prepare than ever they have released their squad for the final against Liverpool.

And usual, most of the big names we know featured with the likes of Courtois and the lethal striker, Benzema all making the list. There is the inclusion of Eden Hazard whom many fan believe must get some minutes on the field as he is seen as one player is who is a great tormentor when it comes to matches involving Liverpool.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Fuidias.

Defenders: Carvajal, E. Militão, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Marcelo, F. Mendy.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Casemiro, Valverde, Lucas V., D. Ceballos, Isco, Camavinga.

Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Jović, Bale, Vini Jr., Rodrygo, Mariano.

The question here is; will Real Madrid be able to win it for the fourteenth time?

Daniel Toffey was a gospel artist who died while on a flight from Accra to Washington after visiting Ghana to honour the funeral of his in-law and to meet his family.

According to Graphic Online, they left Accra on May 22, 2022, late Sunday night.

However, disaster struck onboard United 997 in the middle of the Atlantic when the young Daniel died of a pulmonary embolism.

[A pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blood clot that forms in one of the body’s blood vessels (often in the leg). It then proceeds to a lung artery, where it restricts blood flow abruptly].

According to Dntghana, Daniel Junior died while his father Daniel Toffey Sr. watched helplessly from afar.

“He kept saying ‘Daddy I can’t breathe, Daddy I can’t breathe,’” the senior Toffey narrated to DNT in an interview.

The sufferer was alleged to have attempted to rise up to use the restroom after sitting for a while when his movement got wobbly and he was soon gasping for oxygen.

“We need a doctor, we need a doctor,” one young lady exclaimed. Suddenly, the elder father felt compelled to leap from his business class seat and run to the situation, despite the fact that the flight crew had asked everyone to remain seated.

Daniel Toffey Junior, who worships with PIWC in Columbus North, choked to death in flight despite having as many as seven doctors on board and tools with which those doctors were “impressed” for United Airlines to have aboard.

The flight left around 11 p.m. on Sunday from Kotoka International Airport and was due to arrive at Washington Dulles early the next day.

However, due to the sad incident, the aeroplane was rerouted to Bermuda, where all 178 passengers stayed at Grotto Bay Resort before continuing their journey to Washington.

The departed father was doing well despite the tragic loss, Jesse Lasuer, a business class neighbour, informed DNT. “You can just feel the sorrow in his eyes,” Lasuer recalled, “even though he is holding up pretty great.”

Daniel Toffey Sr. had travelled to Ghana with his wife and son, a Gospel Artist, to attend an in-funeral. law’s The wife stayed behind, while the father and son drove to Pataskala, Ohio, a Columbus suburb.

Junior Toffey was set to release his CD on June 4 in Columbus, with Joe Mettle expected to attend.

Reacting one person who witnessed the incident wrote:

“I was on the flight and I witnessed everything fiilifili. Hmmmm! This world is full of uncertainties. We got stranded at the Bermuda Airport for almost fifteen hours before they got us a flight to Washington Dulles Airport last night. It was a harrowing experience. I have never experienced such a thing in my life. Terrible. Anyway, I pray for the soul of that young man.”

Death is indeed something that is inevitable. It is bound happen so far as one is born. In Ghana, the dead are really revered and accorded the needed respect. But we are today going to have a look at some popular Ghanaians whose death really made the government unpopular at the end.

John Evans Fiifi Ata Mills

He was the president until his unfortunate demise on July 24, 2012. His death really made the Mahama government really unpopular after the latter took over as president of the republic since he was the vice president then.

Who killed Atta Mills became more or less like a national outcry as the actual cause of his death was somehow unknown and the circumstance leading to his death were questioned even though it was public knowledge that ‘president’ was unwell as he was suffering from throat cancer.

Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie (Sir John)

The former secretary General of the New Patriotic Party is no more but it appears his death has done more harm to the Akuffo-Addo government than good. A leaked will of Sir John shows the massive corruption under the current government as it appears the former General secretary even owns part of the Achimota forest.

A breakdown of all his 75 properties has really made things worse for the current government and this made the government to trend on Twitter all this week and some of the properties the the former General Secretary owned include;
