See how families in Takoradi are rushing for their dead bodies from the cemetery

The Diabene community, a small community in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, has been thrown into a place of mourning and running as families and relatives of already buried people are busily figuring out how to bury their dead again.

The community members have incessantly demanded for their football pitch to be expanded for them, since a road construction through the community has minimized the size of the pitch. As such, community leaders have secured funding to help extend the pitch. The expansion works is what has brought about the mood of the community now.

Families in Diabene are rushing 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.

When our Reporters got to the venue, we saw many people converging at the cemetery with coffins, and others were also rushing with theirs to collect the remains of their dead. A back hole machine was being used for the exercise and was being supervised by STMA's Environmental Health Department.
