The identity of the three medical students who tragically lost their lives in the Calabar boat mishap on Saturday, June 24, have been made public.
The Nigerian Medical Students Association (NiMSA) gave the names of the deceased students as Aisha Celestine Ogwu of the University of Uyo, Hamza Kabir of the Ahmadu Bello University, and Mustapha Tukur of the Ahmadu Bello University.
The corpses of the students were found floating on Monday morning, June 26, two days after the Commissioner of Police in Cross River state, Gyogon Augustine Grimah, confirmed their death on Saturday, June 24.
The medical students under the aegis of Nigeria Medical Students Association (NIMSA) had come from universities nationwide to attend the NiMSA annual Health Week in Calabar.
In a bid to explore the city, the students were said to have headed to the Marina Resort for a boat cruise. Sadly, the boat capsized during the excursion, resulting in the loss of three students, while ten others were rescued alive.
