Family demands probe into alleged drowning of Kinbu SHTS student

The family of an 18-year-old male student from Kinbu Senior High Technical School (SHTS) in Accra is seeking clarification on what they consider to be the unusual circumstances surrounding his death.

Last August, six students from Kinbu Technical reportedly skipped classes to go to Borla Beach near the Black Stars Square in Accra.

Tragically, Kingsley Marfo, the 18-year-old student, allegedly drowned while swimming.

After six months, the family feels that the investigation into Kingsley’s death has stalled, accusing the police of neglecting to question any of the individuals suspected to be involved in Kingsley’s demise.

Speaking in an interview with JoyFMon Midday News on February 16, the deceased aunty, Ewurama Marfo, said  “When we inquired about what help the school can offer the family in search of Kingsley, they frankly told us that they cannot do anything about it but rather they will engage the family after his remains have been found

She emphasized that the police have a responsibility to uncover the circumstances surrounding their son’s disappearance for justice to prevail.

“I want the police to help me arrest those five boys, I believe that when thorough investigation is conducted into the case the truth regarding my son’s disappearance will be unravelled. My son cannot just disappear,” she said.

On September 9, 2023, Ewurama Marfo filed a formal complaint with the Ministries Police. However, six months later, she claims no progress has been made in the investigation, and the five students who were with Kingsley have not been questioned.

“When the thing happened they reported to the police and I don’t deal with media, I have reported to my bosses so I don’t deal with the media, so if you want any information go to the police station,” she said.
