Many feared dead as landing jetty collapses in Rivers

By Dennis Naku

 
Many people are feared dead when a landing jetty collapsed in Isaka community, Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Eyewitnesses said many of the victims were on a queue to board a boat from the community to Port Harcourt before the incident occurred.


An eyewitness who gave his name as Isaac Walter said there was a burial in the area and many people were in attendance.

“On our way back, people queued to board the vessel. In that process, the jetty caved in and so many people fell into the river. Few of them were rescued,” he said.
