A 56-year-old Ghanaian father by name Oko Adams has beseeched the public and well-meaning stakeholders for assistance after his family became victims of an explosion.
According to a report by Ghanaweb.com, Oko, the single father of four, had one of his kids become a casualty during the explosion that occurred at La in the Greater Accra Region.
With no support yet coming in for the father and his children including the injured one, they have been putting in an uncomfortable position by the development.
Watch the video below:
“I have nothing, I’ve used all the money in my savings to take care of my child’s medical bills. Now I have nothing left. Please my fellow Ghanaians, the government come to my aid and help me take care of my child. I’m begging you,” the poor father said.
Oko Adams and his children live on a piece of land just beside one of the main public toilets in the area in a makeshift structure barely big enough to accommodate three average height people.
Right beside their sleeping space is a hen coop which is half the size of his makeshift structure and this has been his home for the past two years.
It is reported that anyone who would want to help Mr Oko Adams and his family can do so via the number +233 20 142 9329.
Meanwhile, a meat pie hawker whose items were part of the 100 properties burnt down completely during the Shiashie fire incident in the Greater Accra Region has narrated her bitter experience.
According to the lady who did not identify herself by name, the event turned out to be a double tragedy for her, as she lost her dad recently and had just completed his funeral rites.
She revealed all her predicaments in an interview with YEN.com.gh at the site where her goods used to be kept.
