No fewer than 38 people have been feared drowned in River Kirfi in Kirfi Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

This was disclosed to journalists by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of Kirfi Local Government, Alhaji Bappa, Abdu Bara Danmalikin Bara.

“I want to commiserate with the people of Kirfi, Bauchi State and Nigeria as a whole over the loss of our brothers on their way to their farms,” he said.

“They boarded a canoe – 40 other them on Monday October7, 2019, and unfortunately 38 of them were drowned. Only two persons survived.
