By Adadareporters

The remains of the three missing medical students that drowned at the Marina Resort Area in Calabar, Cross River State on Saturday, have been found.

Their death followed a boat mishap. They were recovered on Monday by the marine unit of the Cross River Police Command, our correspondent gathered.

The deceased, two males and a female, were students of Ahmadu Bello University, Niger Delta University, and the University of Uyo, respectively.

The recovery of their remains was confirmed by Mr Gyogen Grima, the commissioner of police, Cross River State.

He told journalists that, “Today, I want to let you know that the three bodies have been recovered and have been delivered to us.

“When the bodies were sighted, our Marine Police raced to the scene and with joint efforts, the bodies were recovered and we are taking them to where they will be preserved for now.

“The governor is already taking some actions; as you can see, the resort was shut down yesterday; that is to tell you that this incident is being taken seriously.”

Recall that 14 medical students embarked on a boat cruise at the resort when the boat mishap occurred. Eleven of them, who were part of the Nigeria Medical Students Association (NIMSA), were rescued.

Our correspondent reports that they had travelled from various universities across the country to attend the NIMSA Annual Health Week in Calabar. Their ill-fated exploration at the Marina Resort was a side attraction.
