By Omobolanle Kougbe


Two brothers were found dead in Ibeshe Lagoon, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The deceased, Godspower, 11, and Marvellous Ebubechukwu, 13, were reported missing on Thursday after school hours, but later found naked in the lagoon on Saturday.

The father of the deceased, Gabriel Ebubechukwu was said to have alerted the police. He said he suspected foul play.

“It was on Saturday morning that some security men came to our house and told me they found two bodies in the lagoon. On getting there, I discovered they were Marvellous and his brother, Godspower. They were naked. I guess they went to swim with their friends. They didn’t know how to swim.

“But we did not find their clothes around the river, which made me to suspect that there is more to it. I even thought they were abducted.” he said.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, a superintendent, said the command is investigating the incident.
