Ten teenage girls drowned on their way to a wedding in Taraba, while traveling by canoe on Tuesday.

The tragedy, according the head of Red Cross in Taraba State, Manja Agwe Mathew, occurred late Tuesday when the canoe capsized on the Karim River, noting that 3 persons were still missing.

“The bodies of 10 passengers in the canoe were recovered by local fishermen, while search for the remaining three is still on,” he said.

Mr Agwe added that the accident occurred “while the group was traveling to a wedding ceremony in another village across the river.”

Meanwhile, the NGO earlier in the week disclosed that at least 137 people in Nigeria have died since July from flood-related incidents.
