Two sewage staff die inside soakaway pit in Aba
Aba residents were shocked to find two sewage staff dead inside the soakaway pit at their building in Abia state.
The sewage staff identified as Chimamkpa and Orji, attached to a popular sewage disposal company in Aba, had gone to No.176 Azikiwe Road in Aba to evacuate human waste when they met their untimely death.
It is not exactly clear what led to their death but residents speculate that after the men had finished evacuating the waste, one of them came out through the pit’s manhole and tried to assist his colleague by giving him a hand, but as the man inside grabbed his colleague's hand, they both fell back into the bit and were unable to come out. They died before help came.

A resident named Ndubuisi narrated to the Nation: "The incident happened so sudden, it was like a magic. When the one outside fell back into the soak away pit, people thought he would come out with his colleague. But after waiting for a while none of them came out, people around decided to break the cover of the soak away pit only to find the two men dead and police were called in immediately."
