Two final-year Junior High School (JHS) students met a tragic end on Monday, April 8, 2024.

The young boys, Dominic Abu, 15, and Enoch Ogo, 16, both students of the Abisco M/A Basic School at Abesewa, fell into an abandoned galamsey pit at Dunkwa-Abasewa in the Upper Denkyira East District of the Central Region.

The heartbreaking incident occurred as the boys were returning from school. Reports suggest that one of the boys accidentally fell into the pit.

In a heroic attempt to save his friend, the other boy jumped into the water-filled pit, only to meet the same tragic fate.

Ernest Arkon, the Assembly member for the Compound Electoral Area, has expressed deep concern over the incident.

According to Joy online, he has issued an ultimatum to both the Municipal Chief Executive and the Member of Parliament for Upper Denkyira East, giving them a maximum of 4 months to reclaim the land.
