An Audi 80 saloon car at the weekend plunged into Agbarho River, on East-West Road in Delta State, killing three out of the five persons on board, believed to be workers of an oil servicing company in Enerhen, Warri, Delta State.

One of the victims was said to be married with four children. Although no one knew for sure the cause of the accident, but it was learnt it could have been due to the foggy weather on Saturday morning.

According to a source, the straightforward plunge of vehicles into the river in recent times was due to the failure of the contractor handling that section of the East-West Road to provide a barrier after the initial iron barrier was broken down. The victims were said to be going to work when the accident occurred.

An eyewitness said that the car plunged into the river at 5.30 am, and that only two out of the five occupants came out alive, while the three others were still missing, six hours after.

Mr. Taiye Akinmola, who claimed to be a brother to one of the victims, said: “My brother was a staff of Python Engineering Company at Enerhen. He left with four staff in his car. I was later called on the phone by one of the survivors that their car plunged into the river.

“As I talk to you, my brother is missing with two others. The caller who is one of the workers said he swam out of the river with another worker, but my brother and two other workers were trapped in the vehicle.”

Divers located the car and brought it ashore at 1:49 pm, but unfortunately, the three others were not in it.
