UGHELLIâ€”EKIUGBO- Ughelli Community, Ughelli North local government area of Delta State was yesterday thrown into mourning, following the drowning of a set of twins of about two years of age in an open septic tank in their neighborhood.
The twins, whose names were given as Kelvin and Kelly, Vanguard gathered, were the only children of their mother, Mrs. Felicia Idoghor.
According to an eyewitness, Mrs. Idoghor had set out for her tailoring shop on that fateful morning when she decided to stop over to exchange pleasantries with her landlady.
The eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity, said the children left the landladyâ€™s apartment unnoticed by anyone, adding that the children fell into the unused open septic tank that was directly in front of the landladyâ€™s apartment.
The witness disclosed that when the mother later discovered that the children were out of sight, she rushed out in search of them only to discover that they had drowned in the septic tank.
