SS3 student drowns in an excavator pit in Delta State

The principal of Government Technical College, Ogor, Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State has been arrested by the police over the alleged drowning of an SS3 student of the school.

The student, identified as ThankGod Emumirigwe, from the Mechanical Department of the technical school allegedly drowned in a pit at the school premises while he and other students were having their bath after a grass cutting exercise on Friday, October 15. While they were at it, it was discovered that the boy was drowning and some of the students took him out of the water and then alerted the school principal.

It was further gathered that despite pleas from the students for the victim to be taken to the hospital for medical attention, the principal rather brought out his phone to video the students, probably thinking that they were pretending and asked them to call the labour master, who was not in the school premises at the time of the incident.

Those present were said to have gone in search of a tricycle, popularly called keke, to rush the student to a nearby hospital and he, unfortunately, died on his way to the hospital and was officially confirmed dead by the hospital management.
