Two teenage girls from Kofa community, off the Abuja-Kaduna highway, in Tafa LGA of Niger State have been killed following a canoe mishap in the Kofa Dam.

It was learnt that the accident happened around 5pm on Saturday, after the victims, alongside two other girls, boarded a canoe to cross to the nearby Kadau community for a Sallah visit.

The Commander of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN) in Tafa, Hussaini Abubakar, told our reporter on telephone yesterday that the two other girls and the driver of the canoe were rescued and rushed to the hospital.

A fisherman, Abdul Gambo, said he was repairing his canoe on the bank of the dam when he heard distress calls.
