Adewura Latifat Bello

Adewura Latifat Bello, the 26-year old Chartered Accountant who was declared missing in Lagos, has died.

Friends took to Twitter to announce her passing, saying her body was recovered from a canal.

Adewura boarded a bus heading to Egbeda from Ikeja on May 15th, 2019 and had spoken to a family member when she got to Cement bus stop and since then, no one has heard from her.

The Nation reports that she was said to have been on a motorcycle inside Gowon Estate and might have been carried away by floods occasioned by heavy rains that evening.

The report added that in the course of her search, residents of the area had posted on social media that a woman about her size and age was washed away by flood through a manhole shortly after the motorcyclist carrying her was advised not to proceed.

It was said that the motorcycle driver, who survived the accident, was apprehended and handed over to Mosalashi Police Station.

Speaking to reporters, Lagos Police Spokesperson DSP Bala Elkana said kidnap has been ruled out since no ransom was demanded.

      @ Robby What part of the fact that he was told not to proceed don’t you understand?.
      In any country he would be arrested because the story doesn’t even add up. If it were your child would you say they shouldn’t arrest him?
      If it’s proven beyond reasonable doubt that he is innocent he will be set free.
      Floods happen in every part of the world. Hurricanes happen in the USA all the time. What has the government got to do with a flood??
      May she Rest In Peace. How I wish it was a mistake…so sad

    Its just unfortunate, I had prayed and hoped she will be found alive. Not a good news, not a good situation by any mean. Very very unfortunate. May her soul rest in Peace

    So so sad we lost a highly intelligent lady in her prime to the gross negligence of the government. The Okada man I think should be prosecuted if truly he was warned against proceeding. It’ll serve as deterrent to other stubborn okada riders. My condolence to the family of the deceased lady. Its really so sad. May the Lord comfort her entire family in Jesus’ name.
