The Onikate of Ikate land Oba Saheed Elegushi is in the news again for the wrong reason. The other time, it was his wife Olori Sekinat Aramide Elegushi’s menstrual bleeding, which stained her dress at the wedding ceremony of  the president of Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria( FUMAN), Alhaji Prince Saka Odunsi Orobo recently at Orchid Hotel in Ajah and made her the butt of some very unkind jokes at the event.

And now, Eniola Abiola, a female 200-level student of the Department of Dentistry, School of Medicine, University of Lagos has drowned at his seaside resort, Elegushi Beach during her friend’s birthday bash.

It happened that Eniola arrived on the scene at 8:15 p.m. and was having a photo session with her friends near the shoreline when huge waves broke on the shore.

“The wave came the first time, but receded. It came a second time, and floored her. As she tried to escape like others, a third one came and swept her away,” sources said.

However, rescue effort was impossible at the time, as the life guards at the beach were said to have closed for the day.

It was further gathered that the deceased’s father, Dr. Eniola, an eye doctor and University of Lagos staff has threatened to sue the owner of the resort, Oba Elegushi.
