N5m Goods From Cotonou Destroyed As Boat Capsized At Bonny Jetty In Rivers State by CastedDude: 3:05pm On Jan 11
Earlier today, a boat carrying goods worth over 5 million from Cotonou in Benin Republic capsized at the Bonny Jetty in Rivers state. Report has it that the boat arrived Bonny Jetty at about 6pm yesterday, the manager of the Cotonou boat left his duty post to a beer palour to watch football match between Arsenal and Chelsea - leaving the goods inside with no order to unload the boat.

On getting to the Jetty this morning, goods worth over N5 million were seen afloat on the sea.

According to the special assistant on New Media at Bonny local government council, Christian Ezekiel-Hart, this is as a result of gross negligence of duty by the manager of the boat.

When your village people are somewhere twisting your brain,you will leave the right thing to do and go to beer palour to watch the match between Arsenal and Chelsea.

Sorry to the owners of these goods. I feel for them.

I smell lies.


Some criminal elements must have tampered with the goods and scattered the remnants upon the water to cover up.

Is not myopic my dear, the bible says that we should not be ingnorant of the devices of the enemy,in as much as we have Jesus,we have to be careful also in decisions we take day by day.

The people he went to watch playing ball earn in a week what he would never earn in 10000 boat trips even if the goods are his

Why do we just love unnecessary frivolities? You only have one thing to do and you're messing up badly.

Oloriburuku somebody. Imagine this fool. Even with the way I love football, I can't take this very risk. U leave ur source of livelihood for fantasy that ended the moment game finish. I pray he never recover so that he can lean a good lesson

Worst of all, the idiots drew goalless. Goan jerk Morata. He must pay every single kobo sad

By and large though, that's sheer negligence on the part of the manager. Myself, I spent the entire ninety minutes looking for a viewing centre that would show the game. Finally had to settle for my football live streaming app. I just pray our hobbies don't take food from our tables.
