The victim, who hailed from the community, was brought out of the well dead. A sympathiser, who attempted to rescue Sodeeq, also fell into the well and
died. The name of the second victim could
not be ascertained at press time.

A witness said he saw the late Sodeeq
before he fell into the well. He said: “I
passed by the late Sodeeq as he fetched
water from the well. Before I could move
300 meters away, he screamed as he fell
and this drew people’s attention. But the
first person who got to the well slipped
inside the pit. Both of them were brought
out dead.”

A student, who pleaded not to be named,
said: “We have never recorded such incident
in the community. We could not say if the
incident was natural or mysterious. How
can two persons die at the same spot?”

The bodies have been deposited at the Offa
General Hospital.
