According to Accra-based, the incident occurred after heavy rainfall on the night of June 19, 2023, claiming the lives of the children and leaving the widowed mother with a broken ankle.

Family sources confirmed that the single-room mud structure in which they lived had suffered weakened foundations, due to the activities of termites underneath the walls.

Rescuers were quick to mobilise, working tirelessly to retrieve the victims trapped beneath the collapsed building.

“According to the extended family members, they heard cries for help from the women after the rain, and when they rushed there, they realized some part of the mud room had fallen on the family. Rescuers quickly began to remove the blocks to retrieve the family, but it was discovered that the two children under the blocks had already died. Thankfully, the mother only got a broken ankle and was taken to a specialist for treatment,” the assemblyman is quoted to have said,

The remains of the deceased children have been laid to rest as per the tradition of the area.
