Reports suggest the deceased were on an exchange programme with the University of Freisin in Munich.
They had reportedly completed their programme of study and were scheduled to return to Ghana by the end of this month.
Little detail about their death has been given but it is understood that the two separated themselves from others while swimming for fear of being mocked over their poor swimming skills.
However, they rather swam into the deepest side of the man-made lake which led to them drowning.
