A Uniport final year student identified as Rowland Alawari Zeus, drowned while hanging out with his girlfriend yesterday.
Zeus who is said to be a 400 level Animal Science student of the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, had initially been rescued after running into trouble while swimming, however he was plunged back to the water by a speed boat from the dredging pipe he was temporarily laid to recuperate.
Friends of the Uniport final year student who drowned, are already penning down tributes to him on Facebook. Dasenibo Hannah wrote;

I really don’t know what to write. He was loved by all, his show of love to everyone around him and loyalty to whatever is placed in his hands is second to non. I’m pained to say RIP this early. Rest on Rowland Alawari Zeus
