Victims Of Presidential Election Boat Mishap To Be Immortalised In Lagos

Close to one year after six people lost their lives in a boat mishap while on an assignment to monitor the last Presidential and National Assembly elections at the riverine areas of Lagos State, the people of Epe in Epe local government area of the state yesterday said they have concluded plans to immortalise the victims.

Briefing journalists at Bagauda Kaltho Press Centre located at the Lagos State Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, a member of the Board of Trustees of AMBSAM, Otunba Tunde Abass who spoke on behalf of other members of the foundation said the foundation’s name was taken from the last name of the victims.

The victims, Prince Olakunle Adewale, Mr. Muiz Bello, Mr. Wale Mogaji, Mr. Agoro Samson, Mr. Mogaji Gbolahan and Mr. Tunde Salawu died on March 28, 2015 in a boat mishap, an incident which  brought untold grief on the people of Epe.

According to him, the primary aim of the foundation is to immortalise the victims and to cater for the upkeeps of their immediate dependants.

He said, “The foundation will be used as a spring board to alleviate the sufferings of other less privileged and vulnerable youths in Epe division and beyond. A committee has been set up to collate the statistics and present it to the Board of Trustees for consideration.”

Abass said to drive the initiative, an operational framework has been set in motion, adding that the foundation had set up a fund mobilisation committee, saddled with the responsibility of mobilising the required funding from public spirited individuals.
