Mortal remains of the Wa Technical University lecturer, who died in the Ohene Nkwanta, accident, Ephraim Elikem Ablordeppey and that of his wife, Christiana Kuzagbe Ablordeppey have been received by the family.
Until her demise, Mrs. Christiana Kuzagbe Ablordeppey was a secretary to the Wa Senior High School.
Brother of the deceased, Gabriel Senanu Ablordeppey who received the bodies sent them to Sogakope in the Volta region.
The Konongo police initially deposited bodies of victims killed in that gory accident at the Stewards Hospital morgue at Yakwei.
In an interview with Joy News, Emmanuel, who was beside himself with grief, said his last conversation with the brother was on Sunday whiles the lecturer and wife were onboard an OA bus, unbeknownst to him, that was the last farewell message from his brother.
Earlier that day, the lecturer together with his brother and wife, had joined other mourners in their hometown on Saturday preceding that Sunday night, when the two had that ghastly accident.
“Normally when he is leaving, he will call me and when he gets to Wa, he will call me. But yesterday around 12, I never expected his calls, so somebody called me from Wa that there is an accident on the road, so which car did my brother take. I quickly went to JoyNews on YouTube to search for it.
“Lo and behold, it was true. Truly true when we came, yes, it was my brother and then the wife,” Emmanuel recounted.
According to Emmanuel, the family is grieved since there is nothing painful than losing the breadwinners who left behind three children, with the eldest being an 11-year-old boy.
“It’s difficult but I have nothing to say …It’s a great loss, but what can we do? It’s hard. It’s very, very difficult,” he lamented.
The family of 21-year old Abubakar Jimah who visited his sister in search of work in Accra were also at the morgue to convey the body to Bunkpurugu Yunyoo in the Savannah region.
This brings to nine, the number of victims of Sunday’s accident who have been identified by their respective families.
They also include two relatives who alongside 11 others, died on the spot.
Meanwhile, police say the driver of the DAF Cargo truck, Bayiblisi Madewe will be arraigned soon.
