This was the reports by Sahara reporters--
Mr. Ahmed body was recovered today at 8:23 am by divers affiliated with National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA). NEMA spokesperson in Lagos, Ibrahim Farnloye released a short statement earlier stating that NEMA workers are continuing search andrescue operations with the hope of finding more bodies.
Mr. Ahmed reportedly plunged into the river early Saturday morning with three other occupants in a van he was driving, according to eyewitnesses.
The account of the eyewitnesses raises natural curiosity that the accident may be homicide as Mr. Ahmed was said to be heading to Ikorodu to manage a property of his under construction. He lives originally in the Ikeja area of Lagos. Lagos is replete with notorious land grabbers who routinely kill people over land disputes. The body retrieved today had severe injuries to the head, NEMA recovered the vehicle yesterday but Mr. Ahmed's body was not found inside the vehicle.
NEMA states that the body of Ahmed has been deposited at the General Hospital in Ikorodu an Islamic funeral is expected later tomorrow.
May his soul rest in peace.
