Two corps members drown in Nasarawa


The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Nasarawa State has said two members drowned in a river at Assakio community, Lafia Local Government.
The Coordinator, Hajiya Zainab Isah, who addressed reporters yesterday in Lafia, said Oguntola Babatunde and Danjuma Salihu went to the river in the evening of October 8 to swim, but drowned.
She said an Assistant Commissioner of Police informed the service about the incident.
“It is very sad, but I know God will grant them eternal rest and grant all of us, including their families, the fortitude to bear the loss. I can only say that we are bereaved, but God knows better,” Isah said.
She advised other corps members to be careful and obey the rules of their host communities.
“What I heard from a source was that farmers drowned in that river years ago.
“When corps members enter a community, they should ask questions and watch their steps,” the coordinator said.
She added that the bodies had been deposited at Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia mortuary.
