A Canoe loaded with 21 people just capsized in FESTAC and only 3 people survived. The boat was crossing people from 6th avenue to 4th avenue.
According to an eye witness the boat was overloaded because people were much waiting to go out/their home and the boat was mostly consisted of children.
So painful that the government cannot build a common ordinary bridge there. Not that the water is too long.
Come and see how they are bringing out people from the canal.
It happened around 7pm today 11th march and as at this time they’ve brought out just 7 people at 10:25pm, the local government chairman of Amuwo Odofin is here and the area boys are acting as rescue team, no professional is around as calls to the organisations in charge of emergencies are not picking up their calls, only one woman out of the 7 people rescued have showed a sign of life, families of the deceased are crying and many people don’t know who the other un-rescued are.
May God Almighty grant the families of the bereaved the heart to bear the lost.
