Tregedy :No Fewer ECWA Members Going for Evangelism Die in River Benue

A boat carrying 28 youths of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Adeke, Makurdi capsized on River Benue, killing no fewer than 26 of them, including a set of triplets.

Investigation revealed that the youths were going on an evangelism mission to a neighbouring community when tragedy struck.

The Secretary of the English Section of the ECWA church, Miss Favour Simeon, said she was with the 26 youths who died in the accident at Sunday service earlier in the day.

Speaking amid tears to reporters, Simeon recalled that shortly after the Sunday service, the youths had come together and decided to embark on evangelism in another community across the River Benue.
