Four die, one missing in Lagos boat mishap

A speed boat belonging to Oke’ra-Nla Boat Association in the Ajah area of Lagos over the weekend capsized leaving four people dead with one person missing

According to reports, the boat, with 22 passengers on board, was heading towards Bayeku from Oke-Ira when it capsized. While some witnesses say the boat hit a stone as it ferried along the waters, other accounts say another boat hit it from behind after the ill-fated boat experienced boisterous water waves which the boat could not control from behind, resulting in it capsizing.
