A dead whale has been washed ashore on the Dansoman Beach in the Greater Accra Region in the early hours of Sunday 27 March 2016.

The cause of the whale’s death is not yet known but residents are speculating the marine mammal may have died from a dynamite explosion. The sea waves swept the carcass ashore around 3am.

Class FM’s Ridwan Karim Dini Osman was at the scene and reported that scores of residents have gathered to catch a glimpse of the sea creature.

Some of the residents said a similar incident happened in 2013.

They also indicated that they were waiting for the traditional authorities in the area to perform certain rituals before the huge carcass is buried.

It is estimated that over 20 dead whales have been washed ashore Ghana’s coast since 2009, predominantly in the Greater Accra, Central and Western regions.
