The Kano State Government has confirmed 29 persons dead from the Tuesday boat mishap in Bagwai Local Government Area of the state.

This is even as the state has set up a panel of inquiry into the immediate remote Course of the Incident under Navy Capt. Abubakar Muhammad.

Muhammad Garba said the government recovered 29 bodies while seven others are at Hospital and 14 others are still missing.

The accident involved mainly women and children who were coming from Badau Village to Bagwai town for an annual Maulud celebration and who were overloaded in the boat.

“It was due to lack of fuel that dried up from the engine and forced the boat to capsize, leading to the death of 29 people.”

“We are going to take appropriate measures to prevent future occurrence and warn the captains not to be playing with people’s lives because of their desperation to make huge profit,” Garba said.

He added the panel headed by the State Navy Commandant, Navy Capt. Abubakar Muhammad, has also the former SSG, Suleiman Bichi and others as members.
