Two boys identified as Michael Nyam, 8, and Elijah Solomon, 6, have drowned at the dam in Rayfield Resort, Jos, Plateau State.
An eye witness, Mr. Gyang Pwol, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Jos that the boys drowned on Saturday evening, February 19.
Pwol explained that the duo drowned while trying to get back the shoes of one of their friends that fell into the dam.

Pwol, who also confirmed that their remains had been buried, did not give further details.
However, the spokesperson of the State Police Command, ASP Ubah Ogaba, said the incident was not reported to the police.
