A 15-year-old boy, Mohammed Basa, has drowned while bathing in a pond at Kuka Bulukiya community in Dala Local Government Area of Kano State.
The Spokesman of the Kano State Fire Service, Mr Saidu Mohammed, revealed the development in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Monday.
Mohammed said that the incident happened on Sunday when the deceased went to take his bath along with his friends.
“We received a distress call from one Malam Auwalu Dala at about 12:40 p.m. that Basa’s body was found floating on a pond.
“On receiving the information, we quickly sent our rescue team to the scene at about 12:58 p.m.
“Basa was found dead and his corpse was later handed over to the police,’’ Mohammed said.
The spokesman, however, advised parents to prevail on their children and wards to stay away from water bodies to prevent harm coming to them.
