The University of Education, Winneba, has confirmed that two of its students died in the road crash at Asuboi in the Eastern Region.
Two other students are still missing following the crash, according to the Public Relations Officer for the university, Ernest Azutigah.
“We are keenly following and investigating to find their whereabouts,” Mr. Azutigah said of the two missing students in an interview with Citi News.
The school had 35 of its students on board the bus which crashed on Sunday, 31 of whom are still alive.
Ten persons died in the crash, while some injured persons are still receiving treatment.
Nine of the students injured in the crash were admitted to the hospital, five of whom have since been treated and discharged.
The university has said the students were not on an official trip but were returning to school as a result of the break-in university activities, while others were also returning to campus after they left for the weekend.
“They weren’t on an official trip. There are students who organised themselves and were returning to school,” Mr. Azutigah said.
He said the University of Education has been left “deeply saddened” by the incident.
“It is not easy to lose a soul and even though these people belong to families, the university is a community and a family, and we are deeply affected by the loss of lives and the injuries that have occurred in this particular accident.”
