Police investigate death of 2 teenage girls at Okrakwadwo

Police in Adukrom, have commenced investigations into the death of two teenage girls, at Okrakwadwo, in the Okere District of the Eastern Region.

The bodies of the two teenage girls were found by the road on Tuesday dawn after the two allegedly left their homes to visit their boyfriends the previous night.

It is, however, unclear what caused their death, but the two, who had suffered head injuries were rushed to the hospital, where they were pronounced dead on arrival by medical doctors.

Akrasi Eric, an Okada rider, who arrived at the scene shortly after their bodies were found, told journalists:“We heard a loud noise from a Sprinter bus at dawn. The driver rushed to tell us that, he saw two female teenagers lying lifeless. Their heads were crushed, but their bodies were intact. I doubt if it was a car that knocked them down but no one knows what happened.”

Meanwhile, families of both teenage girls, who were awaiting autopsy reports, said they suspected foul play, claiming they saw text messages on the phone of one of the victims, which were retrieved at the scene.

Samuel Obiri, an uncle to one of the deceased teenage girls, said “we do not know what happened. We just heard about it and rushed to the hospital. They died upon reaching the hospital. We have reported to the police, but won’t believe any story that they were hit by a vehicle.” -citinewsroom.com
