The families of trapped victims of the church building that collapsed at Akyem Batabi in the Eastern Region of Ghana have begun to lose hope as the toll turns to rise by the day.
Most concerned family members are in fear of losing their loved ones who seem to be trapped very deep down the collapsed six-storey building.
Some unconfirmed number of worshippers in a church building at Akyem Batabi in the Eastern Region of Ghana saw ill-fate visiting them when the six-storey uncompleted building collapsed on them on Tuesday. Joint rescue workers from NADMO, Ghana Police Service, Jungle Warfare of the Ghana Armed Forces, BNI, Ghana National Fire Service, and volunteers are on-site to ensure they recover trapped victims.
Already there are reports that the toll has risen to 22 as of early Friday morning with a lot more feared dead and trapped under the collapsed six-storey building as the bad stench is already taking over the area.
The regional minister upon visiting the venue has promised that the search will continue until everyone is accounted for.
