Faith Nzube Enemuo is from Nanka Village in Anambra State. She is a graduate of Social Studies from the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA).

Liveschoolnews gathered that, She came along with her co-corpers to play handball at the bank of the river. But, a few minutes into the game, she went missing.

There were about 10 of them, who came to play handball on the dry land near the Ikom River. One of them suggested that they should move closer to the river, but the suggestion was revoked by other Corps members. The ball fell into the river, an eyewitness said, and the late Faith offered to fetch the ball, which was moving faster away from the shoreline.

The late Faith stood close to the river for a few seconds, after which she dived to bring the ball out. Her colleagues watched in excitement as she swam close to the ball.

But, in a moment, she stopped and started waving her hands. They thought she was still playing, until they didn’t see her again on the water surface.

When her colleagues realised what was happening, they signalled to the villagers, who were swimming in the river. After 10 minutes of frantic search, the rescuers could not find the girl. More villagers offered to help with canoes and fishing instruments, but they could not get her.

Two days later, the late Faith’s body was found floating on the Okuni Beach in the neighbouring village.

We, the liveschoolnews team commemorate with her beloved family. May God give them the strength to bear this irreparable lost.
