Breaking: Seven Die In Lagos Lagoon Boat Accident - Channels Television by Politicalidiot: 7:44pm On Jan 30, 2016


Seven people have died following a boat accident in Lagos on Saturday morning.

[b]It was gathered that the incident occurred after the boat which was conveying 17 people from Badore in the Ajah area of Lagos to Ijedeh in Ikorodu, Lagos State capsized.

The Spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), in the Southwest region, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, told Channels Television through a telephone call that, 13 of the occupants of the boat were rescued while one reportedly died in a hospital in Ajah.

The remaining 12 are said to be receiving treatment in the hospital.[/b]Breaking:

As at the time of the phone call, Mr Farinloye explains how the incident happened.

“We received a distress call at about 10:25am about a boat mishap with 17 passengers on board, immediately we mobilized the Marine Police, National Island Waterways and Lagos State Waterways Agency to search and rescue the victims.”

He explained that the cause of the accident was a pile up of sand along their route which the boat did not see and ran into it.

He added that two more people are yet to be found although there are conflicting reports from the different rescue agencies but he added that “some people are dead while 11 people have been rescued”.

R. I. P. to the victims, God would give their family the fortitude to bear their lose.

I however wished the Lagoon loving Oba of Lagos was among.

Still I wish the families of the dead my heartfelt condolence.

Nah, you have to make sure the Ezes from your region (who clapped for the Oba of Lagos when he made that lagoon threat) take the first step into the water. They should have been the first casualties of the lagoon, for failing to defend the interest of your people, when the threat was issued in their presence....

May the souls of the passengers who lost their lives in the boat accident rest in peace. sad

No rest for anyone among the dead who clapped for the foolish OBA as you have now visited first....to prepare a place for the Political jobber Oba and his entire family...


Rest in peace for those that condemned his foolish statement born out of divisibility and hatred for his surposed children from another region.
