River Offin spits out bodies of 2 of 5 drowned men

Two bodies out of five persons who drowned after a canoe ferrying them capsized in River Offin at New Achiase in the Atwima Mponua District of the Ashanti region have been recovered.

The bodies, both males, were recovered on Sunday evening by a rescue team.

Sources say the bodies have since been buried after performing the necessary rituals by traditional rulers.

The deceased were crossing the river to their farm on Friday, 8 October 2021, when the accident occurred.

Although they were eight in the canoe, three were able to swim to safety.

The rescue team, including the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and the locals, are still on the river searching for the rest of the bodies.
