Traditional authorities in Apam of the Central Region have disclosed to Rainbow Radio’s Nana Yaw Asare that some of the children who drowned in the Apam River had sex along the river the gods reside.
The residents in Apam were left in a state of mourning after 12 bodies of children were retrieved from the Apam River on Sunday.
The bodies according to Rainbow Radio’s Nana Yaw Asare, are among some 20 children feared dead.

He further disclosed the leaders of the community are still performing rites to retrieve the remaining bodies.
