The victims

A pregnant woman and seven persons have reportedly drowned in the Oti River in the Saboba District of the Northern Region.

DAILY GUIDE’s source indicated that the incident happened at Nakpaal when a group of mourners were coming back from a funeral at a nearby village close to the Ghana-Togo border.

The Saboba District Chief Executive, David Nyame, who confirmed the incident to this paper, said when the woman and the others got to the river it was late, but one of them said he could take them across the river in a boat but unfortunately, it (boat) capsized when they were on the water.

According to him, eight people were on the boat and some community members tried to rescue them but were only able to retrieve seven dead bodies, leaving one.

The bodies of the deceased persons have since been buried according to Islamic tradition.

Currently, a search is underway by the community members for the eighth person.
