A twenty-Five (25) year old Kwame has been drowned in River Anum at Ofoase, a farming Community in the Asante Akyem South District of the Ashanti Region.
The deceased according to residents, believe he was drowned after disregarding superstitious belief which bares people from farming in the community on Tuesdays.
The Youth leader, Charles Marfo, who narrated the unfortunate incident to Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo said it is a taboo to go to farm on Tuesday in the community.
According to him, “No one is permitted to go to farm on Tuesday because it is a bad day for the community. Those who disregard the belief always face the consequences”.
The body of the deceased was retrieved on Wednesday evening around 10pm after a 2 day search by the police and residents when the traditional leaders performed rituals.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at Juaso government hospital for autopsy.
The Juaso Police Command has commenced investigation into the matter.
