A final burial service has been held at the Appiatse Park in the Prestea-Huni Valley Municipal Assembly of the Western Region for six victims of the deadly gas explosion in Appiatse.

The explosion on Thursday, January 20 left 13 lives lost and several others injured.

Some of the victims identified have since been buried.

On Friday, March 11, a mass burial was held for six of the remaining victims including 15-month-old Ella Baidoo.

The others laid to rest alongside the toddler were Ekua Nyame, 80, Justice Kwesi Takwa, 21, Emmanuel Quainoo, 29, Isaac Benyin, 45, and Michael Afriyie, 19.

Thirty-five-year-old Isaac Anane, whose remains were part of the funeral, was taken to Dumase on the Bogoso-Prestea Road for burial.

Four were buried last weekend while two are expected to be sent to their hometowns for burial.

A thanksgiving service will be held on Sunday, March 13 just before the final funeral service is held.
