Five school children, who tragically lost their lives in the Ampeah Memorial Institute school bus accident on the Nkawkaw highway in the Eastern region, have been laid to rest.

The parents of the children were overcome with grief, unable to control their tears as they bid farewell to their beloved wards.

The solemn occasion unfolded with a mass funeral service, followed by the burial of the deceased in their respective hometowns.

In a poignant display of solidarity, over a thousand residents in Nkawkaw paid their last respects to the young pupils who perished in the devastating accident.

The names of the departed children—Kwasi Nyarko (12), Jerome Narmenu (7), Archer Binney (4), Asare Joseph (9), and Gafktsi Marcus (3)—echoed through the mourning crowd.

The heart-wrenching incident occurred when a Nissan Patrol vehicle, believed to be the official vehicle of the District Chief Executive for Atwima Kwanwoma in the Ashanti region, Prince Karikari, collided with the Hyundai minibus with registration GE 2291-10.

Eyewitnesses reported that the bus driver attempted an unapproved U-turn while driving on the shoulders of the road from the Accra-Kumasi direction at a spot near Nanchia. The result was the tragic loss of five young lives.
