The corpses of two children have been found floating in a concrete water tank meant for construction at Anwomaso-Domeabra in the Ejisu Municipality of Ashanti Region.

The two, Lukeman and Blessing, who are 4 and 2 years old respectively, got missing in the early hours of Thursday, after they were seen playing on a construction site.

Speaking to JoyNews, a Unit Committee member, Seth Boakye Dankwah, said that efforts to find them proved futile.

Mr. Dankwah added that they initially thought the children had been kidnapped.
