Authenticity Is Our Hallmark

An Aboboyaa driver has lost his life in a painful manner from a dangerous accident after break failure when descending a small hill from Atotrom junction toward the Kwapong cemetery.

The deadly incident happened on Tuesday evening, 24th May, 2022.

The Aboboyaa driver who is popularly known as Kwaku was carrying some heavy logs of wood from the bush to sell it at the nearby sawmill company at Kwapong. The wooden logs were tied to both sides of the small tricycle after the back container was removed. Five heavy logs (beams) were loaded and tied with a rope on the opposite sides of the aboboyaa with the driver in front. This has been their practice for carrying logs of wood in the area on the Aboboyaa.

The unfortunate incident happened few meters away from the kwapong cemetery.There is long hill from the Atotrom road that leads to the main Kwapong _Sankore road near the kwapong cemetery. As he was descending this hill, he lost control of the break. This resulted in over speeding forcing the logs to start pushing forward towards the driver. One hit him at the back breaking his head, waste and spinal cord.The other logs pinned him to the steering wheel breaking his body into pieces.

He was immediately rushed to the Kwapong health centre where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The heavy wood has bludgeoned his body in a merciless manner. His lifeless body has been deposited at the Akrodie Mortuary after police observation by the Kwapong police service division.

Kwapong is the third largest town besides Sankore and kukuom in Asunafo south District. Atotrom is one of the villages surrounding Kwapong. Apart from farming, there are no jobs for many of the youth in the area and it’s environs. So most of them resort to this illegal felling and selling of wood for their survival.

This is a local story which happened on the 24th of March, 2022 at kwapong and may not have been reported by any local News media but it’s a true story which has turned the entire town into a state of mourning.

The deceased is young boy of 24 years old and a native of Atotrom, a suburb of kwapong. His parents and friends are yet to overcome the shocking news.

According to his friends, Kwaku is a hardworking guy who has great expertise in the driving of the tricycle. But with break failure, there is nothing he could have done to save his life when the machine was accelerating beyond control forcing the wooden beams to start dismantling and falling down. Some also believe that, the woods were not properly tied which made it easier to begin falling forward on the driver to kill him.

May his soul rest in peace.
