A terrible drowning death of class six student Akwasi Opoku, 14, in the River Numia at Ataase Nkwanta has occurred in the Adansi South District of the Ashanti Region.
The little youngster went to the riverfront with several buddies and chose to swim, but perished as a result, according to sources from the neighborhood.
The family of the deceased, according to Asante Boateng Abusuapanin, is distraught.
Akwasi Opoku had lately lost his grandparents, who had nurtured him, he stated. The Abusuapanin hoped that the body would be located and given a respectable funeral.
Traditionalists in the area are meantime requesting eggs, schnapps, and minerals to carry out rituals intended to find the boy’s body.
Locals have expressed shock and grief at the occurrence, highlighting the profound effect Akwasi Opoku’s passing would have on their close-knit neighborhood.
Many locals recall Opoku as a sociable and generous person who usually had a grin on his face. They think that the community’s spirit will be negatively affected by his leave.
