But another version said seven people lost their lives in the mishap. Four corpses have been recovered. The identity of the victims could not be ascertained as at press time but the recovered corpses were said to have been deposited at Nembe

A resident of the area said the accident could have been averted if only the driver exercised restraint and was not on top speed.

Contacted on the development, Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Eguavoen Emokpae an Assistant Superintendent of Police said he was not in town and as such not aware of the mishap but boat drivers at the Yenagoa jetty confirmed the tragic incident.
