Teen Drowns In Lagos River

culled from SaharaReporters

A teenager and JSS2 student of Ikosi High school in Lagos drowned in the Oniyanri river in Owode-Ikorodu area of Lagos.
According to National Emergency Management Agency operatives,  15-year old Feyipitan Owonifari drowned around 10: 30 AM Nigerian time, but help did not reach his grief-stricken family until 4:30PM  after his mother successfully reached NEMA and the merchant Navy.
Feyisetan mother lamented that emergency officials in Lagos state refused to come to her aid as soon as the teen fell into the river until NEMA was reached.
The body of the teen was recovered today by the merchant navy and NEMA. It was later deposited in the morgue. Feyipitan would have turned sixteen this week.
