Two teenage boys met their untimely death on Easter eve when they drowned in a hotel swimming pool in Benin, Edo state. Ikponmwosa Isibor, 17, and Emmanuel Abuzu, 16, hoped for a good time when they went into the unnamed restaurant and paid to use the pool. Sadly, they drowned at about 4:00 p.m.on Saturday.
Tribune reports that the swimming pool section of the hotel located in the Okhoro area of Benin has been placed under lock and key at the time reporters visited.
Investigation into the deaths of the young men is underway with some staff having been picked up for interrogation. Some staff of the hotel were queried about what efforts they intend to make to ensure such never occurs in their establishment again, however they directed the reporters to meet the police, who have already taken up the matter, to inform them on that.
