6 Year Old Girl Drowns In A Septic Tank
A six-year old girl simply identified as Miss Erenmwon, fell into a septic tank and got drowned. The incident took place at Osaretin Street, Off Murtala Muhammed Way, Benin City. Narrating how the incident, one of the occupants of the building who pleaded anonymity said the late Erenmwon was given N10 to go and buy biscuit, and on her way to a neighbourhood shop, she fell into an exposed septic tank.
It was learnt that when Erenmwon’s dad discovered his daughter fell into the septic tank, he went to search for a ladder with which to climb into the pit so as to rescue her; a move which was a little too late as the girl had drowned already.
The landlord of the building where the exposed septic tank is located, has been arrested by men of the Nigeria Police who got wind of the incident.
