GREENVILLE, SINOE CO. – Sinoe County chapter of the Liberian fishing community is in tears, confused over the loss of a fisherman who drowned during a fishing expedition on October 13.
Undiscovered Megan, as he was commonly known, went with two others on board a motorized canoe to the deep sea when heavy winds erupted, causing the canon to capsize.
Speaking to reporters, Andrew B. Doe, County Coordinator of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority (NaFAA) in Sinoe, said for nearly five days the Fishery community has been in search of the missing men, but was able to rescue two alive around the Sinoe-Grand Kru coastline helpless and are currently at the referral hospital in Barclayville, Grand Kru County.
Doe said, the canoe was discovered in deep sea, assuming from his level of experience in the field that the remaining one person has died, though his lifeless or living body is yet to be discovered.
The two survivors are Kwame Eson and Papa Abakan, both of whom are between the ages of 20 to 38 years and are Ghanaian nationals.
Meanwhile, the undiscovered man who only identifies as Megan is a Liberian and originates from Maryland County.
With at least five years of experience in the fishing field respectively, those involved are residents of the downtown Fanti Town community and do fishing for livelihood.
However, the Crime Service Department of the Liberia National Police told reporters that it was informed by the fishery officials that they will launch an investigation into the matter shortly. Courtesy: LINA
