It was a day of tears and weeping at the Ondo State, when heavy downpour which lasted for almost eight hours claimed the life of a final year student of Ondo State-owned Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, Akoko.
It was gathered that the deceased simply called ‘Doyin’, an Indigene of Ekiti State, was swept away to an unknown destination by heavy flood from a canal very close to her residence in the town.
The Commissioner for Agriculture in Ondo State, who is an indigene of the town, Otunba Gboyega Adefarati paid a condolence visit to the scene.
Adefarati cautioned those who are in the habit of blocking the drainages with refuse to desist from such act. He also advised against building houses close to canals, to prevent flooding.
