Seven girls drowned after a boat they were rowing across a river in northern Nigeria’s Jigawa state capsized, police said on Friday.
Ten girls, aged between 10 and 12, were heading home late at night after a religious ceremony marking the birth of Mohammed, Lawan Shiisu, police spokesman in Jigawa said in a statement.
“Three of them were rescued while seven others… reportedly died,” Shiisu said.
The girls, who were anxious to get home at 12:15am decided to row a boat they found at the bank of the river on their own without a skipper, Shiisu said.
