Two secondary school pupils drown in Ekiti river

Two secondary school pupils dived to their death in the Ureje River, Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, on Friday.

They were among seven pupils, who were said to have scaled the fence of their school and gone for the swimming expedition.

Sources said four of the pupils had jumped into a deep section of the river only to discover that two others were nowhere to be found, hence they raised the alarm.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Caleb Ikechukwu, who said the corpses of the pupils had been deposited in the morgue, stated, “We learnt that the pupils went to the river to swim and got drowned. Their corpses have been deposited in the mortuary.”

According to him, other pupils, who were part of the swimming expedition, will assist the police in their investigation into the incident. Punch
