Three Junior High School (JHS) students at Agona Kwanyako in the Central Region have died.

According to reports, the students drowned and died when their male colleagues who had been asked by their teachers to fetch bamboo for use in the school decided to go to the river bank where they could get the bamboo.

The students, upon arrival decided to swim across the river for the bamboo, but three females unfortunately drowned when they also dived into the river to join their colleagues.


The boys did their best but were unable to rescue the girls due to the strong wave of the river at the time of the incident.

A search has been able to retrieve the bodies of two of the girls remaining one but what has angered and caused the residents is the order given by the Fetish Priest, Nana Afram who worships the River god, who is demanding to take possession of the body of the third girl and solely bury it when it’s retrieved.

He claims he’ll use the body to perform some rights to stop such unfortunate incident from happening in the town
