From our inquiries we got an information that he attended the opening of a funeral house in town, where he got drunk, and decided to take a cool bath inside Atabong river, as he normally does when he is not drunk.
It was unfortunate that people that saw him entering inside the river as a drunkard did not stop him, to avoid loosing his life as he did.
According to what the eyewitnesses said, he only swam for few minutes and was not seen again. An alarm was raised to rescue him but he was no where to be found. They search for him for 2 days until his dead body was later spotted by the bank of the river.
