Chairman of the local government area, Burto Williams, who confirmed the accident, described it as an unfortunate tragedy.

He said, “The accident is a very unfortunate tragedy that requires government to come to the aid of the people of the area who are constantly being ravaged by cascading water.

“Lamurde Local Government is making efforts to provide medical treatment for the survivors while the council will also foot the bill of the burial arrangements of the three deceased,” he said.
