24 hours after, cause of Lagos boat mishap unknown, two persons still missing

Twenty-four hours after five persons lost their lives in a boat accident in Lagos, two persons who boarded the ill-fated boat were still missing yesterday and have not been found. Also, the cause of the boat mishap where 13 passengers were rescued is still not yet known.

When The Guardian contacted the regulatory agency, Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA), it said it was still investigating the reason that led to the accident.

The boat, ‘Blue Boat Marine’, was travelling from Marina Jetty heading towards Ikorodu Terminal loaded with 20 passengers and two crewmembers. The boat capsized at about 5:00p.m. while it was on its last leg of the journey not too far from its destination.
