The incident, Daily Trust Saturday gathered, occurred around 4pm on Thursday at Ora village, Monasara, Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state where he had gone to write the ongoing West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

According to a village source, “Abdulkabir begged one of the residents, Tosho, 10, and his friend to take him to the river to swim.

“On their way, they met one of the school teachers who enquired where they were going to and they lied to him that they were going to buy bread. But he eventually died in the process; and his corpse has been recovered,” the source added.

It was gathered that his father, Mr Abdulsalam, who resides in Idi-Ape area of Ilorin, consented to his being buried by the riverside.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the Kwara State Command, Ajayi Okasanmi (SP), when contacted said he has not been briefed.
