The festive period is a time when people love to hang out with friends and family at various relaxation centers.
Sadly, for Samuel Obu, the teenage son of Pastor Owulo Obu, his life was cut short at the Lekki Beach, Lagos Nigeria, where he and some friends went to hang out just before the new year.
Pastor Obu is the Head of Latter House of God Church located at 26/27 Guinness Street, Pero Bus-stop, Agege, Lagos.
According to PM News, 17 Year Old Samuel went to the beach in company of a female member of his father’s church, Comfort Adikpe, 30; her boyfriend, Busayo and her younger brother, Godwin to enjoy themselves.
Comfort said Samuel drowned at the beach when he and her brother, Godwin, went to play in the Atlantic sea waves.
“When the wave swept him away, we begged the divers to rescue Samuel and after some efforts they retreated when the wave was about sweeping them away also,” she said.
She added that when the matter was later reported at the police station at about 7.35 p.m on that fateful day, she was detained till the following morning when she was released.
When we visited the Pastor’s residence yesterday, the mother of the late Samuel was still in shock.
All she could manage to say was, “we are still confused about what happened to my first child.”
May His Soul Rest In Peace. :( .
