Witnesses have confirmed that two male students of a private secondary school were picked up dead in the flood after a heavy rain in Alagbado area of Lagos on Thursday, witnesses confirmed. According to a NAN report, the witnesses said the boys were found floating on water at Casso Bus Stop on Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway by shop owners and people waiting to board vehicles to their destinations.
Some commercial motorcycle riders carried them to a private hospital which confirmed them dead. A witness said she and others were taking shelter from the rain in a nearby shop when they noticed the floating bodies on the water.

“That was how we discovered the boys and quickly, the Okada (commercial motorcycle) riders rushed and lifted them on their shoulders, but they were lifeless because their legs and hands were just dangling,” the witness said.
One of the motorcyclists told the News Agency of Nigeria that the boys were pupils because they were in their school uniforms.
“I wonder why they should go to school today, which was declared work-free; and see how they have ended their lives just like that; it’s painful,’’ the rider said.
A sympathiser who gave his name as Gbolahan said the deceased could have been friends,
“They must be friends and attend the same school. I am sad and cannot talk now because they are dead and nothing can bring them back to life,” he expressed.
A worker in the hospital who did not want her name mentioned described the situation as painful.
She said the boys were “Brought In Dead.”
Some persons suspected to be the relatives of the boys were seen wailing and rolling on the floor of the hospital.
NAN reports that there was heavy rain in the area in the afternoon which resulted in heavy flooding.
