Videos: Tears flow at funeral of policewoman, 3 children killed in gas explosion


Funeral service for 45-year-old policewoman, Inspector Kate Abban, who died together with her three children in a gas explosion at Ablekuma Fan milk, a suburb of Accra, has been held.

Thousands of mourners, who thronged the Osu branch of International Central Gospel Church to pay their last respect, could not hold back their tears as coffins of the deceased were lined up in front of the church for the solemn service.

As the choir sang some cheerful hymns, the mourners cried uncontrollably in the auditorium.

The sorrowful eyes of mourners and family members, including husband of the deceased clad in red and black, were fixed on four coffins containing the remains of the deceased in disbelieve.

Flanked by family, husband of the deceased sat quietly with his hands folded on his laps. 

Mother and siblings of the late Insp. Abban were inconsolable when the coffins were being carried out to the cemetery.

The four will be buried at the Osu Cemetery.


The gas explosion occurred on Sunday, January 6, 2020 when the family had just returned from church and the late mother was about preparing food for the family.

Madam Abban died on January 9, 2020, Emmanuel on January 10, 2020, while her 11-year-old Joyce Abban and Ebenezer Abban, who also suffered various degrees of injuries, died on Sunday, January 12, 2020.
