A student of the Department of international relations named Chidera Grace died, as a boat capsized in Lagos state.

Six persons were confirmed dead in the early hours of Saturday, 4th July, 2020. While two passengers were declared missing after a commercial boat enroute Ikorodu, Lagos, capsized in the few hours of Friday, 3rd July, 2020 at Ipakodo ferry terminal

The six adult females that lost their lives to the incident were later recovered by Local drivers. The boat captain and his assistant could not be found as search and rescue effort is ongoing to recover the victims.

All efforts by the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) to get the manifest of the boat proved abortive as the LASWA officials at Ikorodu jetty could not establish the numbers of passengers on board from Ebute – Ero

The 20 capacity passenger boat with the name LALEK MARINE, is suspected to have left Ebute Ero jetty around 8 p.m, which is 2 hours after approved sailing time of 6 p.m.
