The deceased (name withheld) was seen hanging on a metal dry line behind her house on Friday afternoon.
The incident, which occurred at Kotei, a suburb of Oforikrom Municipality, had sparked a lot of debate in town.
Several people have expressed doubt as to whether the class-five girl personally ended her life in that shocking manner, and speculated that some people could have killed the girl and dumped the body on the metal dry line.
Residents of Kotei also said that the young girl, who stays with her grandparents, did not show any sign that she was troubled before she died.
They said some students saw her hanging on a metal dry line behind her house with sponge strongly tied to her neck and the pole.
