No less than three police officers who were on bye-election duty have reportedly drowned in Bayelsa State, according to The PUNCH.
The incident was said to have occurred on the eve of the Saturday senatorial bye-elections in Bayelsa Central and West.
The deceased cops were being conveyed to their place of primary assignment when the incident took place.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Bayelsa State Police Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the accident.
“The boat capsized on their way to Oporoma, headquarters of Southern Ijaw Local Government Area,” he said.
Butswat, however, said the number of casualties had yet to be ascertained.
