Tragedy as four die inside well in Kogi

By: dayan (M) |Time : April 03, 2019, 04:41:05 AM
Tragedy struck yesterday in Kabba, headquarters of Kabba/Bunu Local Council of Kogi State, as four Higher National Diploma (HND) graduates who specialised in digging wells died after the well they were engaged to renovate caved in.

The names of the deceased are David, Sunday, Ayo and Ogbekedo, with two of them from the same parents.

An eyewitness said the tragedy occurred at Zango Quarters in Kabba where a primary schoolmistress, Mrs. Agnes Baiyere, had contracted them to dig the well in front of her newly-constructed four-bedroom apartment.

The woman was said to have contracted one of them, David, who invited others to join him in digging the well.

Work was said to have been completed when two of them returned yesterday to evacuate some broken blocks that fell into the well.

However, when one of them entered into the well, he was said to have complained of dizziness, following which another came to his aid.

The two were said to have been trapped in the well and could not come out.

As the news filtered round, the two other workers, who were said to have made for the site to rescue their colleagues, were also trapped and could not come out.

The way this story developed makes no sense at all.
How could they have all entered there without trying something else?
Ruling out anything diabolic, for now, it could be that some dangerous gas (methane for example) leaked into that well from the ground. This is plausible because they may have closed the hole overnight, thereby allowing for some biogas to accumulate there.
But these are graduates who specialized in digging wells.
Damn!

This is appalling, graduates specializing in digging well? not even borehole with machine, a lot is wrong with our country. Why they all decided to be entering the well is beyond me, why not contact fire service or any security agent? Whether it is a spiritual problem or a dangerous gas we will find out soon.
