A young man, Victor Daniels, belonging to 2014 batch of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members posted to Akwa Ibom State got drowned while celebrating Valentine’s Day. Daniels died on Saturday while swimming at the popular Ibeno beach, an offshoot of the Atlantic Ocean.
The deceased, who many of his friends described as a jolly good fellow, had won many ‘Mr Macho’ awards in his state and during his university days. Efforts to get full information about the background of the late Daniels proved abortive as the Akwa Ibom NYSC office was closed for the weekend while calls put to some officials were not answered.
Meanwhile, a native of Ibeno Local Government Area who is a fisherman, Mr Ekpe Okon, said those got drowned at the river were required by tradition to be buried beside the river.
However, Ekpe said that the body could still be taken by the family after certain rituals were performed to appease the gods.
A corps member, Mr Obiora Ike, who was at the beach at the time of the tragedy, said they were afraid to go deep into the ocean to rescue the victim when the tide swept Daniels away. He said: “None of us is a professional swimmer. We were there for Valentine’s fun. So, when the trouble came we were helpless.”
