Mother of award-winning dancehall artiste Ebony, Madam Beatrice Oppong has paid a visit to the spot that claimed the lives of her daughter, friend and bodyguard.
She visited the scene with some members of the Ashanti Regional Council. The said accident that took the life of her daughter and that of 2 others was reported to have happened at Nyamebekeyre close to Mankranso in the Ahafo Ano South District of the Ashanti Region.
Mother of the late artist who was still trying to come to terms with her daughter’s demise pleaded with authorities to work on the road to prevent other occurrences.
“I appeal to the government, head of institutions and the road contractors across the country to do their works with due diligence to avoid unnecessary accidents that claim lives on our roads. If the contractor on this road (the spot of the accident) has sped up work, my daughter might not have died. “She said
Chairman of Ashanti Regional Security Committee and Minister, Simon Osei Mensah disclosed that their visit to the scene of the accident was to get firsthand information on the incidence.
“We have heard some many stories in the media concerning the death of Ebony and three others at this spot. Some people are saying the accident was caused by the negligence of the road contractor working here, so we are here to access the situation ourselves to help in our investigation,” he said.
“We will do whatever we can to address the situation here. A lot of lives have been lost on this road because of its sharp curve and we cannot sit down on concern,” he disclosed.
The dancehall diva, Ebony Reigns, died in a gory car accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway in the Ashanti Region together with her friend Franky Kuri and her bodyguard Francis Atsu Vondee.
