Man, son, neighbour drown well

A father, his 15 years son and their neighbour have reportedly drowned mysteriously in a narrow public well at Oju town in Oju local government area of Benue State. 

It was gathered from an eyewitness that the trio met their untimely death at the weekend when one of the deceased, a popular car wash owner in the town, identified as Matthew Ekpengbe asked his son to fetch water for him from a nearby well to enable him wash a car. 

He said, "the boy went to fetch the water but in the process lost the fetching bucket in the well. And in an attempt to retrieve the bucket, he slipped and fell into it. 

"His father saw what happened and immediately beckoned on a neighbour to join him to rescue his son from the well. Unfortunately both of them also mysteriously ended up falling into the same well. 

"Alarmed by what happened, bystanders rushed to the scene to rescue the three of them, but none of them made it out alive. 

"They were all dead when they were brought out of the well which has been serving people of that area for a long time. 

"The death of the three of them still remains a mystery because of the strange way they met their death" 

The sources said the deceased were immediately buried by their family members given the mysterious manner they died.
