The brother of Jerome Boateng made this known in an interview with Joy News sighted by YEN.com.gh on their verified Facebook handle.
According to Prince, the incident hit him hard because he also has young children like those that perished and he can only imagine what their loss would be to their families.
Kevin said he is willing to pay for the burial costs and anything that would make the family feel free to heal from their tragic losses.

According to Graphic.com.gh, the GFA, in a statement, said the juvenile players aged between 12-15 years were headed to Offinso having undergone their District Colts football registration exercise at Afrancho when the vehicle they were travelling on, submerged in the Offin River.
Ghanasoccernet reported that six players died instantly following the accident in the Ashanti Region and two more succumbed by that Saturday night in the hospital where the critically injured players were undergoing treatment.
The team that plays in the Colts League, the youth league in Ghana, was travelling from Afrancho, a suburb in Kumasi; it is not clear what their mission was.
In another sad report by YEN.com.gh, the State Transport Corporation (STC) has had one of its mini buses burnt by unknown persons at Ho, the Volta Regional Capital.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on the verified Facebook handle of renowned journalist, Israel Laryea, a number of drivers at the station were assaulted.
