The National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) is cautioning communities that drink from the Tano river to desist henceforth because the water is poisoned and unsafe for drinking.
The caution was contained in a release copied to Kingdomfmonline.com and signed by the Offinso North Akumadan NADMO Director, Mamoa Elijah.
Full statement below……
All communities along the Tano river from Techiman – Tanoso to Chira, Duayaw Nkwanta, Bechem are advised strongly not to drink the Tano river water effective today till further notice.
This release is necessitated by an accident involving an articular truck carrying car battery @Tanoso in the Bono East Region. As a result of the accident, the acid in the battery diluted into the water culminating in the death of several aquatic animals including fishes, crocodiles etc.
We are by this urging all to carry the message to the target communities/people along the Tano river bank to safe human lives.
