Four months after the death of Dancehall Artiste, Ebony Reigns, reports indicate that the road that led to the sudden demise of the female artiste has still not been attended to properly since the accident occurred in February, 2018.
According to a report from the Ghana Police Service, Ebony, and two others who were with her in a Jeep, lost their lives after their car collided with an oncoming VIP bus, when their driver tried to avoid a heap of sand in their lane.
The police said the sand was meant for the maintenance of the road. Few days after the accident, the heap of sand was cleared and the supposed pot hole covered.
But, a journalist with Kumasi based Angel FM, Cardinal, on Thursday disclosed to Zylofon FM that due to the poor maintenance, the same road fixed after Ebony’s death has developed big gullies claiming innocent lives.
According to the reporter, the road has somehow been ignored by the authorities because it is not part of government priorities.
The road has become a death path as people who travel on the same road fear for their lives.
He added that it was recently reported that there was another accident that occurred at the same spot two weeks ago.
There were several reports on injured people that were involved in the recent accident but luckily, no one died.
“This road has not been properly attended to since Ebony died. There have been several accidents on that road even after her death but the government has not paid much attention to it. If someone of high position or a government official is involved in an accident on this same road, then, the government will answer our cries.” Cardinal said on Zylofon FM.
