The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has cleared the air over the de@th of a six-year-old school pupil, Modadeoluwa Lawal, in Abuja.
Lawal used to be said to have di#d on Wednesday, November 02, 2022, after attending swimming lessons at her school — Start Rite International School, Abuja — the equal day she celebrated her birthday with other pupils.

She said, “But this is the fact, the de@th of Modade Lawal is certainly a pathetic one. However, investigations so some distance have printed that She didn’t d#e via drowning but as a result of meals ‘Aspiration asphyxia’.
