Two newly recruited Constables of the Durbar Police station in Oyo and a member of the Discipline Intelligent Group of Nigeria (DIGON), Oparemi Goke, and Ogunyemi Mujeeb, have drowned and died while chasing some suspected weed smokers.
The Officers were said to have passed out of Police Training College a couple of months ago.
They drowned around 7:30 pm on Sunday, July 12, 2020, at Awerintu river, Oke Eletu, while chasing the hoodlums who ran towards a bridge washed away by flood.
One of the hoodlums reportedly jumped into the water and the policemen jumped after him and were swallowed by the mud. Their bodies were later retrieved around 9:20 pm.
