Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered a probe into the accident that involved a boat sailing from Mile 2 to Ibeshe in which lives were lost on Friday last week.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy in the state, Gbenga Omotoso, who disclosed this in a statement issued yesterday, warned that anyone found to have contributed in any way to the tragedy would be made to face the law in a bid to ensure a reoccurrence of such an incident was prevented.

According to Omotoso, the rules and regulations of the waterways are clear, and they must be respected in accordance with the value that the state government places on human life.

Emergency authorities, including the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) had said a total of 15 bodies were found during a recovery operation conducted after the W-19 passenger fibre boat capsized.

Huge crowds have lined the streets of Tokyo to pay their last respects to ex-Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, who was assassinated last week.

The 67-year-old was shot dead on Friday while speaking at a campaign event in the southern city of Nara.

A hearse carried Abe’s body through the capital and past landmarks to the funeral hall where he was then cremated.

A private funeral had been held earlier at the Zojoji temple as flags flew at half- mast Across Tokyo and outside the temple while a long line of mourners stretched over two blocks with many carrying bouquets.

Shinzo Abe’s funeral was supposed to be a private affair, but Japan’s public had decided otherwise
