Some pictures are being circulated on the social media to the effect that 48 persons who went on boat cruise lost their lives when their vessel capsized.

Several reactions have trailed the news, but it appears nothing of such happened.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi, has stated that there was no boat accident on Lagos waterways in which 48 persons died.

A statement by the Police PRO, Chike Oti emphasized also that no family has reported losing a member who left home for a boat party or cruise “as falsely depicted with the pictures of unknown persons being circulated on the social media”.

“The Command wishes to advise members of the public to be wary of news emanating from the internet as most of them are tissues of lies uploaded by mischief makers to upset their minds,” he said.

The CP again called on the media to always cross check with the Lagos State Police Command before disseminating such information.
