Tragedy struck residents of 176 Azikwe Road in Aba Abia State  yesterday after two staff of a popular sewage disposal firm died in the building’s cesspit soakway while attempting to evacuate waste.

A resident said one of the men came out through the pit’s manhole and attempted to help his colleague out.

Both of them reportedly fell back into the pit and died before help arrived.

Another version attributed the death to the work of supernatural forces.

    They are not supposed to enter the cesspool in the first place, they should have used a pipe to pump out the mess. Bad work ethic

    Poor maintenance and poor judgment, yet we attribute every calamity to the devil or evil forces. The soak away pits or sewage pit have always been time bombs waiting to explode, ever since I was a child. My friend growing up on the same street almost fell into one, so I grew up with a phobia for those things. With the poor economy, most Landlords have neglected regular maintenance of their property. We pray for mercy upon the families of the dead.
