Mother of the deceased, Amaechi Osadebe, said in Atani on Friday that Okechulwu was returning home with two other persons when the flash flood overwhelmed them.

She explained that it was the high current and turbulence of the water that made it difficult for the two other boys to pull him out of the water.

The transition chairman of Ogbaru LGA, Arinzechukwu Awogu, who visited the family, described the death as a tragedy to the whole Ogbaru community.

He, however, called on the people of the area to take extra precautions to avoid further loss of life.
