According to Punch reports, the man met his untimely death after he rescued a pregnant woman who fell into the river during the downpour and was about to be swept away.

An eyewitness said during the downpour, the whole area was flooded and the pregnant woman was passing by when she fell but that the ‘Good Samaritan’ rushed at her and saved her from slipping into the river. He said;

“During the heavy rain, everywhere was flooded in the area and it was very difficult to identify the road from the river. As the pregnant woman was passing through the flooded road, she suddenly fell into a gutter beside the river

“As she was struggling to get out of the flooded gutter, the man (deceased) rushed at the woman and rescued her from being swept into the river but unfortunately the woman was rescued while the rescuer was swept away by the river.”

When contacted on the matter, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Ondo State Command, Mr Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident and said the command had commenced investigation into the matter.
