Body of missing Nigerian man found in Canadian river
The body of 34-year-old Nigerian man, Oluwaseun Samson Adedeji, who had been missing since June 18 has been found and recovered from Okanagan Lake, Canada.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed on Monday that the body pulled from Okanagan Lake by its Underwater Recovery Team was Adedeji’s,
According to the police, Adedeji jumped into Okanagan Lake from a boat between Rattlesnake Island and Squally Point near Peachland on June 18. They added that Adedeji had been vacationing in the Okanagan with five friends.
The Underwater Recovery Team had employed high-tech sonar to search where Adedeji was last seen almost a week ago.
“The reason we’re using this technology is we’re searching depths between 50 and 60 metres, and we don’t dive beyond 48 metres,” explained Corporal Todd Kaufmann. “It sends out sonar signals and sends back images showing what’s on the bottom.”
