Three persons have been confirmed dead after a boat conveying about twenty passengers capsized in Lagos.


The passengers were enroute Ojo from Coconut jetty, a suburb in Lagos when the boat capsized in the middle of the sea.


Although there was yet to be a report on the state of safety of the remaining seventeen accident victims, but three were confirmed dead at the scene of the accudent Wednesday night.


“Three people have died and five others missing as boat conveying 20 passengers capzised mid-sea in Lagos yesterday night,” a source told The Guardian.


“A 20-capacity passenger boat with 18 passengers and two crew members had capzised mid-sea enroute Ojo from Coconut jetty, a suburb in Lagos.”


However, The Guardian correspondent made efforts to speak with the spokesperson for Lagos State Emergency Management Agency Kehinde Adebayo, which proved abortive as phone calls were unreplied as at the time of filing this report.
