Boat accident claimed eight lives in Bayelsa.

Following a boat disaster that purportedly claimed the lives of eight people in Bayelsa State’s Southern Ijaw Local Government Area. The boat was believed to be transporting individuals from Korokorosei hamlet to Ayama Ijaw, both of which are located in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Area. 

The tragic disaster in which a passenger boat capsized and killed eight people occurred on Wednesday morning. According to reports, the passenger boat was carrying 12 passengers when it collided with a local boat transporting Garri from Yenagoa to Ayama. It was confirmed that it was raining and the tarpaulin meant to protect the passengers was blown away by the wind, covering the boat driver’s face and leading him to collide with a local boat, causing the boat to capsize.

Over the weekend, a similar boat catastrophe claimed the lives of seven people traveling from Otuan to Ayama in Southern Ijaw.

Youths protest court killings in Ogun.

On Wednesday, a group of young people calling themselves ‘Concerned Youths’ protested the recent spate of killings in Sagamu and other parts of Ogun State. They came armed with posters that read, among other things, ‘Stop the killings, we are brothers, let us embrace peace, our mumu don do.’ ‘Youths are today’s leaders; don’t jeopardize your life,’ and ‘Concerned Sagamu stakeholders say no to cultism, violence, drug addiction, and unemployment.’ As they marched around Sagamu, the teenagers sang solidarity songs.

Cult conflicts in Sagamu, Mowe, Ilaro, and the capital, Abeokuta, have killed at least 30 people in the last three months. Governor Dapo Abiodun remarked during a visit to the area that Sagamu “had been infamous for cultism.”

The demonstrators’ leader, Kayode Segun-Okeowo, stated that the cult battle had taken many lives and had a negative impact on the socio economic activities of the locals. He continued, “As if there is no answer to this evil,” the cult conflict has defied all attempts at community reconciliation.
