Nigerians Mourn Adewura Bello, Missing Lady Found Dead In Lagos Canal

Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to mourn Adewura Bello, a Nigerian lady found dead in a canal in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

Naija News understands that the deceased, a 26-year-old accounting graduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), was said to have gone missing on Wednesday, May 15, after she boarded a bus from Ikeja to Egbeda, where she lives.

Adewura’s sister, Fadesola, said that the last time she heard from the deceased was when she told her she was on her way home.

“I spoke with her around 7 pm on Wednesday. She works at Ikeja and she told me she was on her way home. Then, when it was raining around 7:55 pm, I called again. This time it rang but she did not pick. So, I assumed it was the rain.

“But we did not see her after the rain and the next time I tried her number, it said it was unavailable and later said switched off,” Fadesola had said.

Giving an update on the situation, a cousin to the deceased, Benjamin, tweeted on Sunday, May 26 that Adewura’s body has been found in a canal.

“Thank you all for the search. Adewura is Dead. Her Body found in a canal. Heaven has gained an angel. We depart to meet again till we Meet again Adewura. Forever in our Heart. God, I am in pains but who am I the question you. Rip,” he tweeted.

Another Twitter user, @Onaolapofarouq, confirmed Adewura’s death saying: “Thanks for the search. Adewura is dead. “Negligence by the relevant authorities, as usual. An unnecessary death due to an open manhole during a storm. Manhole was left open but fully covered with flood, she and the bike man missed it due to bad visibility. She wasn’t aware.”

Moments after the news broke, Nigerians took to Twitter to mourn the deceased.
