Boy sent to deliver ‘koose’ feared drowned at Madina

A nine-year-old boy sent to deliver ‘koose’ (bean cakes) to his auntie is feared drowned at Madina in Accra, after residents found the parcel and his slippers near an open drainage on Sunday.

The incident which occurred around 6pm has left the boy’s relative including his auntie, who was supposed to receive the food parcel, in a state of shock.

A team from the Ghana National Fire Service mounted a search and rescue operation amidst the heavy downpour, but have had to suspend the mission due to darkness in the area.

Mother of the boy, Ayishetu Ibrahim, has appealed for help to rescue her son who she said is “still alive.”

The fire team said “it’s too early to conclude on the whereabouts of the boy, and urged residents to desist from alarming conclusions.”
