Some residents of Achimota College, a suburb in the Okaikwei North Constituency, are counting their losses following a fire incident that gutted about 15 structures on Wednesday afternoon.
Several properties, including television sets, refrigerators, and a car, among other items, have been damaged as a result.
An affected resident told Citi News in an interview on Thursday, “I travelled to attend to my mum, who is not well. I was called around 2 pm and was informed about the fire incident. I lost everything.”
“My three deep freezers, which I moved here to start my water business, are also burnt. I was at the hospital with my mum when I told her about the fire.”
Another said, “I managed to salvage only one out of the four bags in our room. Everything is gone. I managed to pick up clothing in the laundry basket. An amount of 4,000gh was stolen when I brought some of my items outside. Honourable Theresa Lardi Awuni has come to our aid together with some other constituency officials.”
