At least 10 die as boat capsizes in Port Harcourt
« on: August 30, 2014, 01:30:25 PM »

At least 10 people died in Nigeria on Friday when a boat carrying 35 passengers bound for Port Harcourt capsized and sank, a rescue official and local government spokesman said.

?We can confirm that 10 persons died early today when a Port Harcourt-bound passenger boat sank,? National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) co-ordinator Onimode Bandele told AFP.
?Rescue efforts are ongoing and the agency is already working with other bodies and security agencies in the rescue efforts.?

The chairman of Bonny local government council, Adonye Wilcox, also confirmed the accident, which he said occurred at 7:45 am (0645 GMT).

?Information available? indicates that the boat hit an object on the way and sank,? he said.
?Local divers have rescued 17 persons, including four members of the National Youth Service Corps, while 10 persons died as a result of the accident?.

A search was being conducted for the eight people unaccounted for, Wilcox added.
Boat accidents in Nigeria occur frequently and are often caused by overloading, poor vessel maintainance, speeding and poor lighting.
