A cargo ship which was washed ashore at Aflao in the Volta region Tuesday, has been successfully towed back onto the high seas.
A security source at the Aflao border told Starr News the ship with the inscription ‘Barca Lome’ was anchored on the sea between the Togolese capital Lomé and Aflao, but had its anchors broken by strong tidal winds, which drifted it onto the shores of Aflao.
“A combine team of Ghanaian and Togolese naval officers, however, managed to tow the stray ship back using another vessel later in the day,” the source stated.
The ship was reportedly washed ashore at about 11:00am by tidal waves arising out of recent heavy downpour in the Volta region.
It attracted scores of residents, who rushed to the scene to catch a glimpse of it.
