Kofi Wei, a 35-year-old fisherman, drowned near Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region, resulting in his tragic death.
Christopher Dadzie, the Assembly Man for Gomoa Fetteh, said that on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., Kofi Wei received a request from his senior fishing colleagues to bring a canoe to the shore so they could load up their goods inside and head over to the fishermen.

Since then, fisherman who work with him have started looking for the body in the surrounding towns and on the sea.
