The body of an unidentified man was deposited at Avenor near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle by floodwaters following the rainstorm that hit parts of Accra on the night of Monday, June 8, 2020.

When GhanaWeb visited the scene around midmorning today, June 9, 2020, the body of the middle-aged man was seen lying beside a drain with residents saying the police were yet to report to the scene despite a call placed to them in the early parts of the morning.

Some of the residents who spoke to GhanaWeb said the body was sighted by the drain around 5:00 am in the morning.

As usual of the rainy season, major parts of the capital city were flooded after Monday night’s rainstorm. Some of the worst affected areas included Achimota, Adabraka, Dome, and Avenor.
