SAD: Youth Corper Drowns In Port Harcourt While Crossing River To Get A Haircut For Sunday Church Service
Friends of Corper Dayo, are mourning his sudden demise after
he accidentally slipped and fell off a boat while trying to get across the
river on Saturday. According to Ada Hope who shared the sad news: "Corper Dayo was someone who didn't say
more than 100 words in a day. Corper Dayo was someone who never looked for
trouble. Corper Dayo was someone who smiled in French. Corper Dayo was someone
who always seeked the face of God.
"We the Isaka, Port Harcourt corp members sadly bid
farewell to our friend who was one of us but lost his life last week Saturday.
Corper Dayo crossed the river to have a haircut in preparation for the next day
(Sunday service) but unfortunately did no make it back to us after his haircut
because he reached the island and accidentally slipped off the boat as he was
trying to climb up the jetty leading to the community where we stay. We cried our
eyes out in prayers begging God to rescue him while the searcher swept the
river. Unfortunately according to the wish of God, he was only found two days
after floating in the river. Corper Dayo was finally laid to rest on 2/09/2016.
"We say may his soul rest in perfect peace. AMEN. I also
use this medium to urge our fellow corpers who are posted in riverine area to
be very careful and also put on your life jackets no matter how small the river
