15-Year-Old Boy Drowns In Kano Pond
The Spokesman for the Kano State Fire Service, Mr Saidu Mohammed, revealed the development in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano on Monday.
He said that the incident happened on Sunday when the deceased went to take his bath along with his friends.
“We received a distress call from one Malam Auwalu Dala at 12:40pm that Basa’s body was found floating in a pond.
“On receiving the information, we quickly sent our rescue team to the scene at 12:58pm
“Basa was found dead and his corpse was later handed over to the police.’’
The spokesman advised parents to prevail on their children and wards to stay away from water bodies to prevent harm coming to them.
