Many passengers were burnt to death, others drowned and an unspecified number still missing after virtually all the passenger and cargo boats at Nembe Waterside jetty in Port Harcourt were destroyed by fire in the early morning inferno No description available.
An eyewitness said, “It occurred about midnight when the boat from Nembe and Akassa arrived. After then, they began to load gas cylinders which was wrongly handled and eventually resulted to fire outbreak….

Twelve corpses have so far been recovered and several people including children missing in the early Monday morning fire that engulfed Bonny  Bille,Nembe  Waterfronts in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

A source who lives close to the area told our reporter that the incident happened about midnight , after a boat carrying passengers and goods landed in one of the jetties and another boat, was discharging the refined products .No description available.

“Many are still missing while others with some degrees of burnt have been taken to the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital for medical attention..It is believed that cigarette butts around illegally refined petroleum products might have ignited the inferno.

The waterfronts are said to be a haven for storage and discharge of illegally refined petroleum products.

Most of the missing passengers were said to have gone down with the debris of the boats into the river while search and rescue efforts by relevant agencies are ongoing

.”My heart goes out to all those who lost loved ones in this incident. May the souls of the departed rest in peace. I hope that someday, we would be able to prevent accidents like this because it is sad that it keeps recurring.
