Two teenage girls have been found dead at Okrakwodwo on the Adukrom-Koforidua highway in the Eastern Region.

The family of the deceased suspects foul play and is asking the police to thoroughly investigate the matter.

The incident shocked the predominantly farming residents of Okrakwadwo in the Okere District of the Eastern Region.

The two teenage girls were found on the shoulders of the highway Tuesday dawn.

They are both 16 years old and Junior High School pupils.

It is alleged they left their homes to visit some young men around 11:30pm in another community, Mile 14 before they met their untimely death.

Family members narrated one was found dead while the other was in an unconscious state but later died at the Koforidua Central hospital.

To them, the circumstances surrounding the death of their daughters do not add up.

They claim chats found on their mobile phones are enough evidence.

An uncle of one of the teenagers, Kingsley Afum, was the first to make the allegations.

“I swear heaven and earth, I don’t believe they had an accident and died as being claimed. We suspect the young men at Mile 14 had a hand in it. They have left the community after hearing about the death. We want the police to investigate the matter well and swiftly else we will use our own means, we know how to pour libation.”

The mother of one of the teenagers, Stella Ofeibea, is still in shock.

“I was hoping my daughter survive and tell us the truth. I miss my daughter fondly.”

Other teenagers in the community have been gripped with fear.

“Since the day the incident occurred, I am unable to go to the farm alone. Any strange sound I hear, I panic. One of the girls, Yvonne, was our volleyball striker at school.”

The Assemblyman for the Okrakwadwo Electoral Area, Emmanuel Gadasu, intends to have education for teenage girls in the area and urged parents to be responsible for their wards.

“It is a sad situation, the community is in shock. I will take this opportunity to educate the young girls in my electoral area, more importantly, I urge parents to keep an eye on their children.”

Police in the Eastern Region has begun investigations into the matter.
