A two-year-old boy, Eniola Ajakaye, has drowned inside a drum of water while holidaying with his grandmother in Aboru, in the Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos State.
Officers from Oke Odo Police Division arrested the victim’s father, Sunday Ajakaye, a mechanic, and Sunday’s 65-year-old mother, after the boy’s mother, Mary, accused them of complicity in the death.
A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Eniola drowned around 2pm on Foursquare Street, Ago 40 Estate, where his grandma lived.
He said, “The woman had gone out for a church programme, leaving him with some other children who had come to holiday with her.
“She was called on the telephone that the boy was missing. People searched for him for hours without any success.
“When it was evening, a woman said she saw something inside a water drum in the house.
“When they checked the drum, they found Eniola there.”
The boy was reportedly taken to a private hospital in the area where he was confirmed dead.
Another resident, Jide Thompson, said the family took the dead child back to the house and invited some pastors to bring him back to life, adding that all the effort was in vain.
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the boy’s corpse was in the mortuary pending the release of the autopsy report.
