Valentines day tragedy: Corps member drowns in Akwa Ibom beach

Tragedy struck in Akwa Ibom yesterday, when one Victor Daniels, a 2014 batch B member of the National Youth Service Corps serving in the state, reportedly drowned while swimming at the Ibeno beach, reputed to be the longest sand beach in West Africa.

Details of his death are still sketchy, but The Nigerian Times learnt that Daniels, who also holds several ‘Mr Macho’ awards in his state, died in the beach covering about 2 kilometres, before help could come his way.

The Ibeno sand beach, located in Ibeno Local Council Area of the state, stretches to James Town on the Atlantic, providing recreational facilities for water sporting and pleasure for fun seekers.
