Fisherfolks in Ada in the Greater Accra Region are living in fear after two fishing canoes and some crew members went missing.

The crew members Graphic Online gathered set sail on Wednesday, 13 September, 2023 and while returning from their fishing expedition on Thursday dawn, their canoes capsized near the estuary whilst trying to enter the Volta River.

Seven fishermen out of the 19 fishermen involved in the accident were still missing as of 6:30pm on Thursday.

The Ada East District NADMO Coordinator, Ebenezer Teye Kisseh Nartey who confirmed the incident said NADMO received a distress call around 7am on Thursday of an accident involving two canoes.

Nartey revealed that 10 out of the 11 fishermen onboard one of the canoes named “Shalom” were rescued while two others out of a crew of eight onboard another canoe named “Barcelona” were found in a community in the neighbouring Volta Region.

He said six other fishermen on the second canoe are still missing.
