2 Fishermen Confirmed Dead Af Tema Harbour

Tragedy struck in Tema in the early hours of Thursday as two fishermen lost their lives after their canoe was allegedly rammed into by a patrol speed boat at the anchorage of the Tema Port.


The incident occurred during a Homowo ritual fishing expedition sanctioned by the Tema Traditional Council.


The identity of the patrol boat is yet to be determined, but some members of the fishing community claim it belongs to the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA). However, the GPHA has vehemently denied that the boat in question belongs to the Authority.
