Flood sweeps away middle-aged man in Ondo community

A middle-aged man has been swept away by flood in Iwaro Oka community of Akoko South West Local Government area, Ondo State at the weekend.

Sources said the motorcycle of the farmer, simply identified as Akede, was seen inside the river very close to a popular filling station, which made people aware that the farmer was missing.

Family members were thrown into mourning when all efforts to find him proved abortive. His body was later recovered in a river very close to St Patrick’s College, Iwaro Oka at the weekend. 

Members of the deceased’s family were in pensive mood when newsmen visited his residence on Sunday.

The deceased was described by his neighbours as cool-headed and an easy-going person, who cherished his family.

Efforts to speak with the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the area, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Yusuf were unsuccessful.
