An unfortunate occurrence on the Agona Nkwanta-Takoradi Highway in Ghana’s Western Region resulted in the terrible death of a Junior High School teacher.
We both lived in the same community, but we went back to our hometowns for the holiday, the heartbroken wife said as she opened up about her traumatic experience. He had made the decision to send me to school today and pick me up later. But before he could, we got the heartbreaking news of his premature death.
The deceased, Emmanuel Ntonah, was a JHS teacher at Santiaw near Agona Nkwanta in the Ahanta West District. He was 30 years old and had recently returned from a holiday with his wife in their ancestral hamlet of Komfoeku in the Shama District.
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.”
