, Nigeria.
The Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) has recovered 12 bodies so far in the latest boat mishap on the Badore-Ijede sea route which occurred on June 29.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the boat mishap occurred mid-sea at about 11.00 p.m. on June 29 on the Badore-Ijede sea route with only three survivors.

The 20-passenger capacity unmarked boat with a 60″Hp engine capsized after being hit by severe waves en route Egbin Jetty in Ijede at Ikorodu, near Lagos.

The boat started its journey from a jetty at Badore, near Ajah on the eastern flank of Lagos.

Confirming the recovery of the bodies to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Tuesday, the General Manager of LASWA, Mr Oluwadamilola Emmanuel, added that five bodies were, however, yet to be recovered.

He said that LASWA, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, the Lagos State Ambulance Services and the Nigeria Police Force had intensified efforts to recover the remaining bodies.

Emmanuel said: “LASEMA has taken corpses of victims whose family members were not on ground to the mortuary, while those whose families were on ground have been claimed.”

It was gathered that the accident was caused by poor visibility and the fact that the passengers had no life jackets. (NAN).
