Delta State Police Command has disclosed that the search for the missing passengers involved in the boat mishap was still in progress, adding that residents in the state should remain calm.
The command made this disclosure in a press release made available to this Oasis Magazine (OM).
You will recall that on the 9th of March, 2019, a boat conveying 22 passengers, three Policemen and 19 members of the community returning from ward 3 Ebrohimi to Koko Jetty after the elections, capsized along the water way at Ureju community.
Police report shows that 18 passengers including three Policemen and fifteen indigenes have been successfully rescued, while four passengers are still missing.
Two of the rescued passengers have been rushed to the Oghara General Hospital, as no INEC official or NYSC member was involved in the boat mishap as earlier rumored.
The Commissioner of Police Delta State Command, CP Adeyinka Adeleke, has however reiterated his commitment to ensure the safety and security of all Deltans at all times.
