A small community in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, Diabene has been thrown into a place of mourning and running as families and relatives of already buried relatives are busily pondering on how to bury their dead again.
According to Skyy News that was monitored by Talksafrica.com families of the deceased were heading to the community’s cemetery with coffins to collect the remains of their already buried dead relatives for reburial.
This is because the town is reclaiming part of the cemetery just to ensure that they have a larger space for expansion works on a football field for the youth in the community.
The community leaders led by the Chief and Queen-mother, with the help of the Sekondi -Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA), are breaking affected tombs and exhuming coffins from the cemetery.
Many people have converged at the cemetery with coffins, and others have also been rushing with theirs to collect the remains of their dead for reburial. The exhumation is being supervised by STMA’s Environmental Health Department.
