A/R: Building, other properties destroyed after heavy rains


Over one thousand people have been displaced after heavy downpour in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday evening September 6, 2020.

A lot of properties were destroyed including a building.

Some of the areas affected by the floods include Aboabo Pelele, Atafoa, Dechemso, Ohwim, Amanfrom and Asuofua, Sokoban, among others.

The victims in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo called for the intervention of the government, KMA and NADMO over the perennial flooding in the metropolis.

They attributed the situation to ongoing construction of drains and poor sanitation in the metropolis.

“We didn’t sleep last night and we don’t have anywhere to go. All our properties have been destroyed while others have been washed away. Even what to eat today has become a nightmare” they said.

They appealed to NADMO, government and stakeholders to come to their aid.

Meanwhile 55 year old man Tetteh Wulolus whose building collapsed at Sokoban Wood Village in the Nhyiaeso constituency expressed worry about the flood situation in the area.

According to him “I sustained injuries when the building collapsed. I was asleep with my wife and children and I realized that the building was collapsing around 3am”.

Assemblyman for Sokoban Wood Village Electoral Area Hon Kwadwo Boateng said the assembly will demolish buildings around waterlogged areas in the electoral area.
