  1. Pity! If the well is abandoned, should it not be properly boarded or sealed off to avoid such occurrences?
    May God console the family.
    RIP lady.

  2. State law must prohibits the use of any unsecured object such as planks, round plastic, banana leaves etc. Every well must be inspected and certified by the department of public safety and when a well is not in use, it must be covered securely to prevent any form of accident.

  3. So sad Iya Afi has to leave the world this way. Spoke to her prior her death. We even joked about the jolof rice she’s making that afternoon and the incessant drink in of Pepsi Asore his neighbour bought for her.
