18-Year-Old Gbenga Owolabi Reportedly Died Few Days After Finishing His WASCE Examination As Fence Collapsed On Him In Delta State(Photo)

18-Year-Old-boy, Gbenga Owolabi in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, has died after a fence collapsed on him and killed him . This is coming a couple of days after he had completed his West African School Certificate Examination (WASCE).


Owolabi died on Sunday when the fence fell on him while returning from the hospital where he had gone to give food to his younger sister. The sister is said to be on hospital admission following an appendicitis surgery.  The fence is believed to be part of the property belonging to the wife of a business magnate (name withheld) located in Damure Street, Afiesere.

Tribune Online gathered that sympathizers at the scene could not save Owolabi’s life as the impact of the fence was devastating.  Neighbours who were all in tears described young Owolabi as humble and respectful, saying his death was unfortunate and a great loss to the family.

Efforts to speak with the police public relations officer, DSP Onome Onomewakpoyeya to confirm the story proved abortive.
