Covid-19: Mother of three jumps into the Osun river over lockdown (Read Details)


It was gathered that a woman who defied the coronavirus (Stay-At-Home) order in Osun State, was on Wednesday rescued by some residents after she allegedly jumped into the Osun River at Ogo-Oluwa area of Osogbo, the state capital.

The woman, identified as Kafayat Alake, could have drowned but was lucky as some concerned residents who had seen her walking on the bridge promptly rescued her.

One David Johnson, who rescued her said: The thing happened so fast that we could not stop her. However, when she jumped, people called for help, prompting me to dive in, and I was able to rescue her.

We were somewhere around that place when the woman’s body dropped from the bridge. We thought she was either pushed or fell over by mistake at the first but while others were calling for help, I had to jump into the river and rescue her.

While explaining the situation, she disclosed that she hails from Alapaaro, Isale Osun, Osogbo. She said she had three children and could not cater for them due to some financial predicament.

My husband stays in Lagos. We separated about 13 years ago, she revealed. However, she was later rushed to a nearby hospital in an O’ambulance for a medical check-up.
