Heartbreaking! Two Siblings Drown In Lagos Lagoon After Returning Home From School (Photos)

Two siblings from the same mother, Marvellous and Godspower Ebubenwachukwu aged 11 and 14, from the same mother, drowned in a Lagoon at the Ibeshe area in Lagos State hours after they returned from school and went out to play on September 29th.

They were declared missing when they didn’t return home after going out to play. two days of searching for them, their bodies were found in a Lagoon. Onwuasoanya Fcc Jones, shared the sad story on Facebook…Read below;

Could there be a worst tragedy than having to see your grown up children taken away, just when you are so sure you have got them for keeps? At 11 and 14 years of age, parents have started rejoicing and even counting the days on when to start reaping the fruits of their investment on their children. But when the wicked hands of death chose such a time in their lives to snap them away, then there is little condolences can do.

When I spoke with these children’s mother few minutes ago, I didn’t find the right words to express my condolences, nor soothing words to comfort a her for the loss of her children. It would have been easier if these children were sick, but for children who returned from school and went out to play, only to be reported missing and after two days, their corpses were recovered from a lagoon, I do not know of a worst heartbreak.

When I brought the bitter news of the disappearance of these two angels to our notice, yesterday, I didn’t tell us then, how closely connected to the case I am. Marvellous and Godspower were my wife’s first cousins. Theirs is that kind of family, you never get to know whose child is who, as cousins relate so closely more than some siblings.

Nda Chioma, their mother is a fine soul, and the last of my mother-in-law’s siblings. Beautiful like all of them. Young and hardworking, she had the best dreams for all her children, including these boys who have now joined God in Heaven.

We can only imagine the pains of their parents, but we should never pray to come close to such experience in this life. This is the kind of thing that tempt one to question God, but God knows everything and whatever He allows, he knows the reasons for sure. I am sure these boys are in Heaven with their Creator, my prayer is that God gives the parents, especially their mother the strength to beat this grievous loss”.

May their souls rest in peace (Amen)

    Parents should learn how to regulate the play areas of their kids when they have the opportunity to do so.
