A VIP bus containing people going to Wulensi in the Northern Region on Thursday morning is said to have run into the Oti river after the driver lost focus.
The bus with the registration number GT 5313-19 which is believed to be traveling with passengers from Accra to Wulensi plunged into the river while maneuvering to get onto the pontoon to cross to the other side.
According to a passenger who was also on board the VIP, the driver of the bus told them to alight from the bus to enable him to pack on the pontoon.
He further added that he suspects that the bus lost focus after the break of the car failed.
There were no casualties but an excavator that was deployed to pull out the bus was unsuccessful until a Winch tractor successfully recovered the bus from the River
