The lifeless bodies were recovered from the river as people in the nearby towns rushed to the scene to offer their help.

The team that plays in the Colts League –  the youth league in Ghana – was travelling from Afrancho, a suburb in Kumasi, where it is not clear whar their mission was.

Others say the team was returning from a football competition while reports say they had travelled to register their players for the upcoming season.

But is the most like that they had gone for a competition as registrations normally take place at the regional FA in Kumasi.

The four critically injured players are currently undergoing treatment at the Komfo Anokye Hospital following the accident.

Twenty-four (24) other kids are also receiving treatment at the St. Patrick Hospital in Offinso following the accident.

The news has thrown the entire football fraternity in Ghana into a deep state of mourning as the deaths of the such young souls has shaken followers of the game.

But the players of the Offinso-based met their untimely deaths – with very scanty details on how the bus involved in the crash.
