A Woman Warned them to leave – Principal

Principal of Elly Demonstration Academy, Aliyu Abdullahi while recounting the scenario at the police station on Saturday after the 9 corps members drowned at river Mayo Selbe said “I met a Kaka woman crying at the police station and inquired to know why she was so bitter then she told me the story.

According to him the woman said, “my day is not fine because i told the corps members to vacate the location because there was water flowing from the mountain top into the river.

“ I told them to relocate because with the way I was seeing the water flow from the mountain top, it will be dangerous if they stayed there before I left.

“When I heard of the incident I could not help but come down to see for myself and discovered that some of the corps members were swept away by the wave of the heavy water flow..”

It would be recalled that divers who resumed search on all rivers in Gashaka on Tuesday had earlier recovered seven corpse out of the nine drowned corps members in Mayo Selbe river as at Sunday.
