Two students found dead after heavy flood in Lagos


Two male students of a private secondary school were on Thursday found dead in the flood after a heavy rain in Alagbado area of Lagos.

It was gathered that the boys were found floating at Casso Bus Stop on Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway by shop owners
Some commercial motorcycle riders carried them to a private hospital, which confirmed them dead.
An eyewitness said they were taking shelter from the rain in a nearby shop when they noticed the floating bodies on the water.
“That was how we discovered the boys and quickly the okada (motorcycle riders) people rushed and lifted them on their shoulders but they were lifeless because their legs and hands were just dangling, the witness said,” she said.
One of the riders told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the boys were students because they were in their school uniforms.
“I wonder why they should go to school today which was declared work free and see how they have ended their lives just like that; it’s painful,’’ the rider said.

A sympathiser simply identified as Gbolahan said the deceased could have been friends.
“They must be friends and attend the same school.

“I am sad and cannot talk now because they are dead and nothing can bring them back to life,” he said.
A worker in the hospital, who pleaded anonymity, described the situation as painful.

She said the boys were brought in dead.
NAN reports that there was heavy rain in the area in the afternoon which resulted in heavy flooding.
