4 dead bodies recovered from Wednesday’s floods in the Ashanti Region


According to reports, a significant downpour on June 21 resulted in the deaths of four people from various locations in the Ashanti Region.

Three persons drowned at Atafoa, Sepaase, and Tafo, claims an Adom FM report.

When he dove into the river on June 22 to look for the deceased, the brother of one of the victims in the Atafoa event also perished.

The NADMO’s Frank Duodu, the regional director for Ashanti, said that Wednesday’s downpour was the heaviest in four months.


“For the past four months, yesterday’s rain is one of the days we did not find it easy at all as we recorded four drownings. We had one at Tafo where a six-year-old boy was carried away when he attempted to recover his ball. In Atafoa, a forty-seven-year-old man also got washed away with his bicycle. The third one was in Sepaase where one man was carried away when he attempted to move through the waters with his motorbike.

“The elder brother of the one that died at Atafoa also drowned after he got into the waters in an attempt to recover the body of his dead brother.”

To recover the dead, representatives from the National Fire Service, the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), and some locals collaborated.
