Three people have been confirmed dead in a boat accident after it overturned in the middle of the sea in Lagos.
It was gathered that the boat was conveying about twenty passengers en route Ojo from Coconut jetty, a suburb in Lagos.
Although there is yet to be a report on the state of safety of the remaining seventeen accident victims, three were confirmed dead at the scene of the accident Wednesday night.
“Three people have died and five others missing as boat conveying 20 passengers capsized mid-sea in Lagos yesterday night.
“A 20-capacity passenger boat with 18 passengers and two crew members had mid-sea en route Ojo from Coconut jetty, a suburb in Lagos.”, said an anonymous source.
However, efforts made to speak with the spokesperson for Lagos State Emergency Management Agency Kehinde Adebayo, proved abortive as phone calls were unreplied as at the time of filing this report.
