It was gathered that Precious Omordia and three friends (a boy and two girls) had gone to swim in the river around 1:30pm, when the incident occurred. .
However, instead of the friends to seek immediate help, they allegedly abandoned him and fled without informing anyone about the incident.
Omordia’s hostel mates later became worried and launched a search for him when they discovered that his phone was in his room and he was nowhere to be found. .
His dad was eventually notified and that was when investigations led them to the river where his body was retrieved around 4pm by the indigenes. His corpse has since been taken to #Agbor.
