Four boys on Saturday, September 21 got drowned in a river at a Kumasi suburb, Breman, in the Suame municipality of the Ashanti Region

The incident occurred at about 5:30pm.

It comes barely two days after a primary six pupil got drowned at Bantama-Kokoso in Kumasi.

The boys reportedly went to swim in the Nwabi River, which had overflown its banks following torrential downpour earlier in the week.

Three of the victims named as Clinton Gyimasu, 9, Ezra Owusu Afriyie, 10, and Agya-Wusu, 9, were pronounced dead on arrival at the Tafo Government Hospital.

Their bodies have been deposited at morgue for autopsy.

A fourth victim identified only as Baba and a resident at Tafo-Pankrono, was also pronounced dead after he was sent to the Ama Serwaah Clinic.

As at the time of filing this report, his family were yet to complete processes to convey his body for burial in accordance with Islamic tradition.

The Assemblyman for Breman East Electoral Area, Joseph Sarfo, said police have begun investigations into the incident.
