It was a sad scene as two teenagers on Monday drowned at Apodun dam in Igangan area of Oyo state.

The teenagers, Ositayo Ojo, 15, and  Isreal, 15, were said to have drowned in the dam on Monday morning.

According to their trainer,  Mr Ope Oyediran, they were sent on an errand but instead went to the dam to play.

Mr Oyediran explained that the two teenagers were his apprentices and would be finishing their training by the end of the year.

It was gathered that the parents of the deceased  have been informed of the incident.

A community leader in the area, Mr Shittu Apodun said the place became a dam after some miners dug the land and  abandoned the area.

According to Mr Apodun, the corpses have been deposited in the mortuary while the police have been duly informed.
