A 22-year-old Nigerian student of the Wilfrid Laurier University, drowned on July 6, 2018, inside the Ottawa River near Renfrew, Ontario.

He was on a weekend excursion with other students at the time of his death. He was swimming when he went underwater. He was found and pulled to shore, where CPR was started. Paramedics arrived and took him to hospital, but he was pronounced dead a short time later.
