The Kebbi State Government has condoled with members of victims’ immediate families, the Yauri Emirate Council, and the local government over a boat mishap involving 30 traders.

In the ugly accident, 23 people were feared dead.

It was learnt that the boat, loaded with 30 traders and their goods, was sailing from Kasabo village on Monday to Yauri town for commercial activities when it capsized.

Alhaji Ahmed Idris, Chief Press Secretary to the governor, in a statement on Tuesday, said his principal sent the condolence in a message to the affected community.

Gov. Idris appealed to the affected families to accept the will of God in good faith and prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the deceased persons Jannatul Firdaus (Paradise).

“I want to urge you to see what happened as the will of Almighty Allah that nobody can question, therefore, accept it in good fate. We should also continue to pray to Allah to forgive their shortcomings and grant them Jannatul Firdaus,” he prayed.
