A 100-level student of Political Science and Public Administration of the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, identified as Kingsley Etim, drowned in a hotel’s swimming pool during a party on Saturday.
An eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased was found when one of his colleagues spotted someone in the pool after others had left for other activities.
The source expressed shock that there was no indication that someone had drowned before everybody left the pool.
The source explained, “When my friends and I were about leaving the venue of the party to catch up with time before they locked our hostel, we heard that someone had drowned in the pool.
“I was shocked because there was no sign that such had happened and everyone had left the pool a long time before then.
“No one noticed he (Etim) was drowning. Maybe because it was already dark and there was loud music. When he was brought out, people tried to revive him, but it was all in vain.”
Our correspondent gathered that the deceased was later rushed to the University of Uyo Health Centre, where he was confirmed dead.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Akwa Ibom State, Odiko MacDon, confirmed the incident and described it as unfortunate.
He said the police had commenced preliminary investigation into the matter to unravel more facts about the incident, adding that they had not foreclosed any foul play.
MacDon said the corpse had been deposited in an undisclosed mortuary pending the end of investigation.
