An 11-year-old boy and his rescuer have been swept away by flood into a canal linking Aburo and Iyana-Ipaja on Ige Road, Alimosho in the early hours of Saturday.
According to eye witnesses, two young boys sent by their parents to buy cooking gas at a gas station unknowingly fell into the drain through which water passed into the canal.
“Three young men attempted rescuing the boys and succeeded in rescuing the older one, but one of the rescuers popularly known as Wasiu Stubborn was swept away while trying to rescue the other victim.”
