Two people were confirmed dead in a local boat (canoe) mishap at Zangon Durgu village, in Rimin Gado Local Government Area of Kano State.
The Public Relations Officer of the Kano state fire service, Saminu Yusif Abdullahi, confirmed the incident.
He said the boat, which was conveying four people from Zangon Durgu to Kanya village, capsized.
