Boy drowns in flood in Abaji

A boy, 13, identified as Daniel, on Saturday night drowned by  flood while attempting to cross a water channel in Abaji town, Abuja.

An eyewitness said the deceased teenage boy and his uncle were crossing a water drainage to board another vehicle to Nasarawa Toto, when he slipped and fell into the gutter, adding that the flood caused by heavy rains washed him away immediately.

He said the boy’s corpse was found the next morning  at the river bank after a thorough search, explaining that the police were alerted and came to convey the corpse to the general hospital for examination.

The Abaji Divisional Police Officer (DPO), DSP David Kolo, confirmed the incident.

He said the late boy and the uncle were returning from Ibadan, Oyo State and were on their way to Nasarawa State, when the tragedy happened.
