Details has emerged on how the ‘yet to be identified’ University of Benin student drowned in River Benue during the just concluded Nigeria Universities Games Association (NUGA) which held at Benue state and hosted by the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi.

According to a closed friend of the deceased who spoke with Campus Gist on the condition of anonymity, James was warned not go beyond a particular point at the river which he failed to obey.

Late James Odibo
Coursemates of the deceased who lamented the unfortunate incident described Late James as a loving and playful fellow.

One of his friends (and probably an eyewitness) who took to their class Whatsapp group said the incident was quite unfortunate and could have been avoided.

According to him, he (James) and his team have been visiting the river for 3days. For some weird reasons, he decided to venture deep inside the river, which he eventually drowned.

“It is just crazy why one would decide to swim in one of the biggest River in Nigeria, a highly diabolic one for that matter”, he lamented.

“It was just sudden. He just went down, no struggle, no shout.

“Local fishermen found his body two hours after the incident”, he added.

The body of late James has since been deposited in Madonna Hospital, Makurdi, Premium Times reports.

Until his death, James was a 200level student of the department of Medical Laboratory Science, school of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Benin.

Unconfirmed reports has it that James was born Twin. His twin brother who was said to have collapsed on hearing the ugly incident, is currently recuperating at the hospital.

Obviously, youthful exuberance cost him his life. But what is this diabolical nonsense in the report? Nollywood and Irikerido Akolawuyi have really fed us with so much superstitions that we are quick to ascribe this sheer folly to supernatural causes. The guy had a cavalier attitude to his safety and he paid dearly for it.
