A young man believed to be in his 20’s has drowned in the Oti River in the Krachi Nchumuru district of the Oti Region.
The unfortunate incident which happened over the weekend left many in shock.
Speaking to IGNEWSS, the director of National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Boffour Elija Bawah narrated that, the late driver’s assistant by name Attah Donkor was swimming in the Oti River when the unfortunate incident happened.
