Farmer drowns while trying to rescue his goat

A 42-year-old livestock farmer, Segun Onagunwa, has drowned inside a well on his farm on Joe Arubiewe Street, Mosan, in the Egbeda area of Lagos.

His body was recovered from the well by the Lagos State Fire Service and handed over to policemen from the Gowon Estate Police Division.

This is just as another middle-aged man, identified only as Hassan, was brought out dead from a well, which he was working on in the Iju area of the state.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Onagunwa, who also had poultry on the farm, had gone to the place with his son on Thursday to feed his chickens, goats and other animals.
