Christopher Andofo Junior, who went swimming in the company of two friends, is alleged to have been carried away by high currents of the water following recent rains.
 
The two swimming partners who took the police to the scene of the incident are still traumatized.

Relatives of one of the children say they do not see their son recovering from the trauma immediately.

According to them, a few minutes into the swimming, they realized their friend was drowning but their efforts to rescue him were unsuccessful.
