The body of a 19-year-old remedial student of Sethoo School at Awoshie in Accra has been retrieved at Mallam, Accra after he was swept away by floods on Sunday, 7 April 2019.

The body of Richard Ananae was found in a major drain around Mallam on Monday morning after his colleagues and parents reported him missing at the Awoshie police station after Sunday’s heavy downpour in the night.

Reports indicate that Richard reported to the school on Sunday to prepare for a paper on Monday. He later told his friends that he was going for a haircut. On Monday, his friends noticed his absence and his family was contacted.

The body was later found by officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), who conveyed the remains to the morgue.

Meanwhile, at least, five other people, including a woman and her child, were killed by the floods.

NADMO has blamed residents of Accra for the floods in the city. Areas such as the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, Kaneshie, Avenor and Alajo were submerged leading to the deaths at separate locations. Flooding in Accra is perennial and all attempts by the authorities to get citizens to avoid building on waterways and clogging drains have proven futile.

Already, city authorities have begun desilting drains as the rainy season sets in.
