A National Youth Service Corps member identified as Joseph Adebayo who went on a picnic to celebrate the end of his service year has drowned.
It was gathered that the sad incident happened on Thursday, inside Gubi river in the outskirts of Bauchi.
The deceased, along with two of his colleagues, had boarded a faulty canoe, which capsized. The two others were rescued by villagers, while Adebayo got drowned.
His former schoolmate, Cecilia Eastal Chemical Akinlabi left a touching tribute and said:
