Two children, Michael Nyam, eight years old, and Elijah Solomon, six years old, drowned at the dam in Rayfield Resort, Jos, Plateau while trying to recover their friend’s shoe on Saturday.
However, ASP Ubah Ogaba, the police spokesman in Plateau, said the incident was not reported to the police.
Gyang Pwol, a witness, stated that the children were both residents of the Rayfield community.
“They jumped into the deep water in the dam to rescue a shoe of their friend, unfortunately, the volume of water was too much.
“Before help could come, they got drowned,” he said.
