Traditional rites to be performed on Black Volta river after 18 perish

The Chief of Dokochina, Dokochinawura Muniru, says preparations are underway to perform some traditional rites on the Black Volta river where 18 people perished while riding on a boat.

According to the Chief, some youth have been tasked to search for the remaining bodies at the banks of the river.

The yet-to-be-identified victims were travelling across Dokochina, a mining area in the Bole district of the Savanna Region.

According to reports, the boat carrying some 20 passengers capsized when it crashed into a fisher’s net upon getting to the middle of the Black Volta.

Meanwhile, fishermen have suspended all fishing activities until rituals are performed to calm the tides.
