All nine students entered the beach but sadly, only five of them made it out alive. Four of them, two males and two females, drowned and their bodies are yet to be recovered.

Following the horrific incident, three of the students fled the scene out of fear, while two others aged 14 and 16 waited till men of the Nigerian Police Force arrived. They also provided the names of the drowned students.

The spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirming the incident, said the families of some of the victims have been contacted.
