The brothers had gone to the beach for a picnic on Sunday with Ubong’s four children and wife. Ubong was said to have entered into the beach to swim. There was anxiety when he did not surface from the waters.

Francis, who attempted to save him by also diving into the water, was reported to have drowned as well. There was panic around the beach when efforts to save the men proved abortive. The remains of the victims were said to have been recovered in the early hours of the following Monday.

A source said, “They went to catch fun at the beach on Sunday. They were eating when Ubong went inside the beach to swim. But he did not surface. His brother plunged in to rescue him, but got drowned as well.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, who confirmed the deaths of the brothers, added that the incident happened around 8.30pm.

He said, “The Skye Bank manager, his children and wife went to Ibeno Beach to have fun. Sadly, he got drowned. His brother died while trying to save him. The family initially did not report the incident. Their bodies floated and the family took them to Uyo. There is no suspicion of foul play.”

A check on Ubong’s Facebook wall showed that he was last active on the social media platform on October 30, 2017. On the date, he posted a studio photo of himself, with many of his friends commending his outfit.
