Missing Lady Found Dead Inside Canal In Lagos
The young lady who was declared missing on May 15, Adewura Bello, has been found dead in a canal in Lagos.
Adewura was a 26-year-old accounting graduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
According to her sister, Fadesola, she went missing on Wednesday after she boarded a bus from Ikeja en route home to Egbeda.
Fadesola said: “I spoke with her around 7pm on Wednesday. She works at Ikeja and she told me she was on her way home.
“Then, when it was raining around 7:55pm, I called again. This time it rang but she did not pick. So, I assumed it was the rain.
“But we did not see her after the rain and the next time I tried her number, it said it was unavailable and later said switched off.”
Confirming her death, her cousin, Benjamin tweeted:
“Thank you all for the search. Adewura is Dead. Her Body found in a canal. Heaven has gained an angel. We depart to meet again till we Meet again Adewura. Forever in our Heart. God, I am in pains but who am I the question you. Rip.”

Another tweeted, Onaolapo Farouq, wrote in detail explaining that her death was caused by negligence by the relevant authorities.
He explained that the death occurred due to an open manhole during a storm.
“Manhole was left open but fully covered with flood, she and the bike man missed it due to bad visibility. She wasn’t aware,” he noted.
