“Eighteen persons, including the three policemen have been rescued, while search is still on for the remaining four missing persons.

“Two of the rescued victims have been taken to the hospital for medical care.

“Investigation into the incident is already on,” Orisewezie said.

Also, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Delta, Dr Cyril Omorogbe, refuted reports that INEC staff were involved in the boat mishap.
