Oct 26, 2016 – Tragedy: 3 Die Inside Well At Federal Housing Estate 33 Onitsha Anambra State

Three men on Tuesday lost their lives while digging a borehole in Anambra state.

The tragic incident happened at 1 Henrick Drive in Onitsha yesterday afternoon while two of the men were digging a borehole for a borehole drilling contractor.

Reliable sources informed NG that two men simply identified as Papa and James were working to drill a borehole but got stuck inside the hole.

In a desperate bid to rescue the two men from Akwa Ibom State, the borehole contractor who hired them paid an Hausa man N100,000 to rescue them but the Hausa man also died while trying to rescue the two.

The viral deaths soon caught the attention of local residents who rushed to the scene.

Some bold men reportedly went inside the well to bring out the bodies of the 3 victims.

The bodies of the deceased had been deposited at a mortuary in the area.

    What was in the hole that could have killed them? Thorough investigations is needed into this incident. The contractor has a lot to answer.
