I’m deeply saddened to hear about the tragic incident in Hunki village, Nasarawa State, where four young rice farmers lost their lives in a boat capsizing. My thoughts are with their families and loved ones during this difficult time.
It’s important that efforts are made to recover the missing boat driver and ensure safety measures are taken to prevent such incidents in the future.
The victims have been identified as Alkali Congo, Shedrack Dauda, Mashack Dauda and Akolo Moses.Spokesperson of the state Police Command, DSP Ramhan Nansel, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday said the farmers were returning from the farm when the incident happened.
The PPRO stated that four corpses have been recovered by local divers while the boat driver is still missing.
He added that effort is ongoing to rescue him or recover his body.
