On Thursday, the people of the Breman Jamra township mourned as six of the eight pupils that were killed due to the cave-in of their classroom, were laid to rest.
The tragedy that occurred on Tuesday where a classroom building collapsed on a KG class while lesson was in progress has left the town very sorrowful, and the school has been temporarily shut down.
The burial was initially delayed by the youth over disagreements on where the deceased children should be buried, due to fear of exhumation of the dead bodies by ritualists, but through the intervention of the MP for the area as well as the Asikuma district Police Commander, the matter was settled.
MP for Asikuma Odoben Brakwa, Anthony Effa along with delegations from the Central Regional Education Directorate, the Methodist Church of Ghana and the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District Assembly were present at the burial to extend their condolences to the bereaved families.
Speaking to Citi News, Chief of Jamra Nana Kwaw Fosu III, appealed to the government to hasten work on the new KG block.
Meanwhile the Asikuma Odoben-Abrakwa District Police Command is currently investigating the incident.
