LASWA Refutes Rumours of Boat Mishap
Written by Maritime First

The Management of the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) has denied any incident of boat mishap anywhere on the state Inland Waterways on Tuesday.

Refuting the speculations, the Public Affairs Officer, LASWA, Miss Wuraola Alake, said that the attention of LASWA had been drawn to a video making rounds across social media falsely claiming that a boat mishap occurred at the Five Cowries Terminal on April 26.

Alake said that the incident in the purported boat mishap video was actually a routine safety simulation exercise being carried out by the LASWA Emergency Rescue Team as part of their training exercise.

She explained that the training demonstration which took place in Lagos was part of LASWA safety preparedness against any possible incident on the State Inland Waterways.

Alake urged the general public to disregard the video, as it was done by an unknown source without proper investigation and verification.
