Recall that the boat was conveying 21 passengers to their destination in Majidun, Ikorud when it capsized on the waterways after hitting a solid object in the sea, killing a pregnant woman and six others on board including the couple.

The passengers who are top workers were heading to the Ikorodu Jetty where they hope to board their vehicles in the terminal to their various homes but most of them never returned.
