Boy Drowns In Soak Away Pit


A 13-year old boy, Kabiru Sanni has drowned in an abandoned soak away pit at 17,  Orisanu Street, Ijegun in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State, Nigeria.

It was learnt that Kabiru drowned in the pit covered by flood as the victim  attempted to pass through it.

P.M.NEWS gathered that the landlord of the house, the late Ogunsake Saba attempted  to construct the soak away but could not complete it before he  died a few years  ago.

The house was inherited by the late Ogunsake’s children. But they also did not  complete the soak-away.

According to the tenants, they paid advance rent to enable the landlord’s children  complete the soak-away but they did not do it or refund their money.

Efforts by the tenants to compel them to complete the project did not yield any  result until the incident occurred.

When P.M.NEWS visited Isheri Oshun Police Station, the reporter was referred to the  State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Yaba, Lagos where further  investigation has commenced on the matter after the suspects were transferred there.

At the time of filing this report, the suspects were still in SCID custody.
