Priscilla, a 300 Level accounting student of the Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Edo State, has died after drowning.
A video shared online shows the students standing around the shallow part of the water before Priscilla ventures into the deep end. After a short while, she’s seen flailing her arms as she tries to get the attention of her colleagues.
At this point, there was commotion already and the person filming immediately drops the camera so the screen is blank but voices can still be heard as her friends screamed and tried to get to her in time.
Sadly, she didn’t make it out alive.
A video of the incident has been shared online but it’s disturbing.
