How two Covenant University graduates drowned in Elegushi on Sunday

An Instagram user has called for more attention safety in Nigerian tourist sites.

The Instagram user, @ronke_johnson reported about two of her friends, graduates of Covenant University who attended a birthday at the Elegushi beach Lagos on Sunday.

She said both of them, identified as Sola Ogunmefun and Funmi Odusina drowned in the ocean.

According to reports, the two were swept away by a big wave while taking pictures beside the water.

“Funmi and Sola, both graduates of Covenant University and in mid twenties lost their lives at Elegushi beach while at a friend’s biryhday party yesterday. I can’t help but wonder if maybe it would be a different story if we just had lifeguards at locations like these in Nigeria or a wave alert system or even an emergency medical unit,” @ronke_johnson said as caption to the photos of the girls posted on Instagram.

“These lives matter. They were young vibrant adults looking to make a change in our country. They had only just finished their masters programme in International Law and Diplomacy at Unilag.”

What was supposed to be a day of fun and laughter and birthday wishes quickly turned into one of sorrow and endless tears. Funmi and Sola, both graduates of Covenant University and in mid twenties lost their lives at Elegushi beach while at a friend's biryhday party yesterday. I can't help but wonder if maybe it would be a different story if we just had lifeguards at locations like these in Nigeria or a wave alert system or even an emergency medical unit. These lives matter. They were young vibrant adults looking to make a change in our country. They had only just finished their masters programme in International Law and Diplomacy at Unilag. This can't be the norm in our society, every life matters. All we ask is that the government parastatals in charge look into this. Let our beaches be safe again. #fallenbeacons #savelivesatthebeach #425lostatshoreyearly @pulsenigeria247 @instablog9ja @westafrikanman @womenofthegodkind @covenantuniversityota @sisi_yemmie @lynnjaphet @ifunto
