A tragic accident on the Agona Nkwanta-Takoradi Highway in Ghana’s Western Region claimed the life of a Junior High School teacher.
We both lived in the same neighbourhood, but we returned to our hometowns for the holidays, the sad wife explained as she opened up about her horrific experience. He’d decided to send me to school today and pick me up later. But before he could, we received the devastating news of his untimely demise.
Emmanuel Ntonah, the deceased was a JHS teacher in Santiaw, near Agona Nkwanta in the Ahanta West District. He was 30 years old and had just returned from a vacation with his wife at the Shama District’s ancestral hamlet of Komfoeku.
On the first day of classes starting up again, tragedy occurred as Emmanuel was riding his motorbike to report for duty. He reportedly crashed with a sprinter bus travelling at high speed coming from the opposite direction, killing him instantly and tragically.
As inquiries into the accident’s circumstances continue, his remains have been moved to a private mortuary at Apimanim.
The devastated wife, Eunice Ntonah, spoke with Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show, and told her terrible description of the occurrence. She expressed her profound sorrow and said, “It would have been our first anniversary in just a few months, and he has left me behind so suddenly.”
