A petition and appeal to the Russian Government to issue a posthumous award of bravery to a Nigerian student - Richard Eluemunor Okasia, who died while trying to rescue a drowning lady at a beach in Kaliningrad.

A Nigerian man , Eluemunor Richard Okasia , has drowned after rescuing a drowning lady at a beach in Kaliningrad , Russia . The unfortunate incident happened on Saturday , July 17 , 2021.

He was a student in a Marine University , who got married barely a year ago . It was gathered that he and his wife were at the beach when they spotted the lady drowning . His wife was said to have begged him not to go into the water but he insisted .

According to an eyewitness , " He was part of a group of four guys that tried to rescue the girl that was drowning . He was the first to reach her and he pushed her out of the strong current . The others were then able to get the girl to the beach . He himself was then carried deep into the sea by the current . He couldn't get out . He was above the water for a few minutes and then went under the water . "

Please sign this appeal till it gets to the right table.
