A 22-year-old Nigerian student of the Wilfrid Laurier University, drowned while swimming during an excursion inside the Ottawa River north of Renfrew, Ontario, on July 6, 2018.
Chuck Ozulumba was preparing to enter his fourth-year as a Bachelor of Business Administration student at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics on Laurier’s Waterloo campus before the tragedy struck.
It was learnt that he had gone on a weekend excursion with other students on the fateful day when the sad incident happened.
He was swimming when he went underwater and was pulled to shore and given a CPR after he was found.
Paramedics later arrived at the scene and took him to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Investigations have been launched into the death and police say there is no foul play so far found in the death of Ozulumba of Markham.
A burial has already been scheduled for tomorrow for the deceased student.
Recall that a 6-year-old Nigerian boy recently died in a similar circumstance after he drowned at a swimming pool in Canada barely two months after his family moved.
Also, in a similar fashion, Nigerian A-list singer, Dbanj lost his one-year-old son, Daniel III who drowned in their family swimming pool in Ikoyi Lagos.
Nigerians slammed the singer and blamed him and his wife for the death of their son which perhaps, prompted the Lagos State police to invite Dbanj for questioning after their mourning period.
