Two boats collided at about 4 a.m. (0300 GMT on Friday) on River Dole-Kaina in the state’s local government area of Dandi. One of the boats was laden with petroleum products when it collided with the other boat full of traders who were returning from a village market in Dandi district. The passenger boat burst into flames after the collision and was gutted by the fire.

About eight passengers who sustained injuries in the accident were taken to a hospital for treatment. The corpses of 38 people had been recovered and buried immediately in line with Muslim tradition. About 48 passengers from one of the boats are still missing.
