Disaster struck yesterday in Asaba, Delta State when two lovers drowned in a swimming pool of a popular Hotel which is a haven for love birds during festive periods.
It was learnt that the deceased couple decided to swim hours after drinking at the hotel’s pool side. But the boy’s mother warned him not to swim.
According to an eye witness report, as soon as the couple dived into the pool, they screamed for help. Unfortunately, before anyone could rescue them, they died.
However, some of the boy’s close friend said that the deceased had been having problems with his step mother who allegedly placed a death curse on him.
But a source who disagreed with the story said he died on deaf ears.
Police spokesman in the state, ASP Famous Ajieh confirmed that the owner of the hotel including some of the workers were being interrogated and added that the corpses of the victims were taken to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) mortuary.
