He said the victim identified as Izuchukwu Achusim, a resident of number 35 Guesthouse street in Fegge, visited the hotel to swim with his girlfriend.

Haruna said in a statement released:

However, the victim who was said to be drunk jumped into the deepest part of the pool and got drowned.

The hotel manager and other guests pulled the victim out and rushed him to waterside hospital Onitsha for medical attention but he was later certified death by a medical Doctor on duty

The police immediately alerted and the body was photographed and deposited at the hospital mortuary for autopsy.

The case is under investigation to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident.

I appeal to members of the public who lacked swimming skills to always take precautionary measures by using life jackets provided at the swimming pool in order to avert similar ugly incidents.
