Youth Corper Dies Trying To Save A Ball

Faith Nzube Enemuo has been reported to have drown in a river in Ikom local council. She is a Batch “C” member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

She is a graduate of Social Studies from the University of Abuja. She came along with her co-corpers to play handball at the bank of the river. But, a few minutes into the game, she went missing.

10 of the corpers went to play handball  near the Ikom River. While playing with the ball, it fell into the river and faith offered to fetch the ball which was moving faster away from the shoreline. As she dived into the river to get the ball, the story turmed when she stopped and started waving her hands, and unknown to her, her fellow corp members thought she was playing in the river until they didn't see her again on the water surface.

When they realized what was happening, they signaled to the villagers, who were swimming in the river. After 10 minutes of frantic search, the rescuers could not find the girl. More villagers offered to help with canoes and fishing instruments, but they could not get her. Two days later, the late Faith’s body was found on the Okuni Beach in the neighbouring villa

May her soul rest in peace.
