The incident was said to have occurred during a downpour on Tuesday.
This is coming barely a month after a similar incident occurred which claimed the lives of three persons who were returning from Bayelsa State.
Two of the five passengers were said to have survived the accident.
At the time our correspondent visited the scene of the incident on Wednesday, local and professional divers were still battling to recover the corpses of dead passengers that were drowned in the accident.
One of the deceased was identified as Omamode Ojegba.
Ojegba was in his early 40s and was the Director-General of the Delta State ADP Governorship Candidate, Frank Esanubi’s campaign organisation.
A friend of one of the victims, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the occupants were returning from a political meeting in Kwale when the incident occurred.
However, as of Wednesday when the vehicle was recovered, the corpses of the three remaining passengers had yet to be found.
The state commandant of the FRSC, Rindom Kumven, said he had not been briefed on the incident. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
