“A passerby who saw her jump into the river quickly alerted the state fire service. We didn’t know what happened to her, we were just looking at her from a distance,  receiving a call. All efforts to rescue her proved abortive. They couldn’t find her body, maybe due to the water level in the river.”

Efforts to get a reaction from State fire service officials proved abortive. The mobile of the Administrative Officer, Ibrahim Adekinle was not reachable.
