According to the Marine, Railway and Ports Police, Master Benjamin Abaidoo, the deceased, sneaked out of campus with his friends at about 0530 hours, on Saturday, April 23, 2016 to Allan Beach, a popular Beach Resort in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis to swim where he reportedly got drowned.

According to the father, though he is no longer married to the mother of the victim, his maternal uncles who came down from Yamoransa, their hometown have been assisting him in an effort to retrieve the body.

The sombre and grief stricken father Kojo Segu, who spoke with YOURS IN THE INDEFATIGABLE SERVICE OF GHANA, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson on Sunday, May 8, 2016 laments its been 15 days since the incident but all efforts; both spiritually and physically to get the body have not materialised.

The bemused father is therefore calling for the assistance of all and sundry to help in the search for the lifeless body of his son.

Mr Segu also expressed disappointment over the indifferent posture taken by the School’s Authority on the incident. He claims the School has not been up to the task ever since the incident occurred.

Police are still investigating the circumstances leading to the incident whilst the search by the family also continues.
