An unidentified teenage boy was found dead in Osun River.
An eye witness, Mutiu Muftau said: “When I was going to the farm in the morning, I saw some pupils beside the river telling me that there is a corpse in this river.
“I now moved closer to the place to see for myself. Later when we were sure that it was a human body, I went back home to call my mother who followed me to the civil defence office to report so they would know the necessary action to take and they came without delay.”
