Five persons were yesterday confirmed dead with five others missing after a boat accident along Lagos-Ikorodu waterways.
The mishap which occurred around Bayeku- Igbogbo in Ikorodu at about noon was said to have been caused by a steering problem, which the paddler could not control. The boat was said to be coming from Oke Ira Nla jetty at Ajah.
Aside the bad condition of the boat, the crew were said to be......
inexperienced and were over speeding.
It was gathered that the boat had 20 passengers and two crew members, out of which 17 persons were rescued by local fishermen at Igbogbo jetty and rushed to different hospitals.
