It is still unclear what caused the boat to capsize.
But two who are fisher folks were able to swim to safety.
Though a search team was able to rescue three of them including an assembly man, as at the time of filing this report, the body of Surakatu was yet to be retrieved.
Meanwhile the MCE for East Gonja Mohammed Tamimu has since dispatched a search party to look for the body.
