A guard from a construction company falls from a bridge and drowns in the Kwara river.

Mallam Babangida, a security guard from the Kaiama Local Government Area of Kwara State, lost his life on Sunday after falling from a bridge into a river in the area.

One of the construction companies in the state is believed to have employed the individual in this capacity.

Babawale Afolabi, the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, said the incident occurred at 6 a.m. on Sunday.

Afolabi claimed that his corpse was later recovered after it had been washed to the river bank by the current.

“Mallam Babangida of Tunga Rijawa village perished after falling from the Moshe Bridge into the river,” he explained. The incident took place in the wee hours of Sunday morning, police said.

“The deceased worked as a security guard for Turning Point Construction Company, and he was on his way home after work when he collapsed while attempting to cross a bridge. He was killed as a result of his injuries.

Due to the strong rains, a river wave washed away the ladder, which caused him to fall into the water. Afolabi continued, "However, his lifeless body was later discovered by the river."
