5 Year Old boy found dead in Septic Tank

A missing five-year-old boy, Desmond Ra­bome, has been found dead in a soakaway (septic tank) at an uncompleted building in Ushafa commu­nity, Bwari Area Council, Abuja.

Little Desmond, who was taken in by his mater­nal aunt, Mrs Joy Odufo in February, after the death of his mother, reportedly went missing at about at 6:30p.m. on Wednesday, June 28.
This attracted concern from some residents of the Ushafa community, who as­sisted in the search for the boy.
Mrs Odufo, who is the elder sister to Desmond’s fa­ther, alleged that the matter was reported at the Ushaffa Police Station, but no action was taken to search for the missing boy.
Mrs Odufo, a petty alcohol retailer, and an Urhobo from Delta, disclosed that the boy was later found dead in a soakaway on June 29, at an uncompleted building near her store.
A neighbour, Mr. Ikenna Ojobor, however, alleged carelessness on the part of the boy’s guardians as the cause of the tragedy. Ojobor said though Desmond was a little unruly, most people in the community were fond of him because he was an adorable and playful child.
His words: “From what I know about Desmond, he was very likeable; I only blame his guardians for fail­ing to take proper care of him. The death of the young boy was felt by all members of this community. This is a lesson for other parents; it is negligence on the part of those left to cater for this child that resulted in this ugly incident.”
Mr. Sumaila Sabo, com­munity leader of Ushafa, ad­vised that the remains of the late boy be buried at the place he was found, since the cause of death was unknown.
