It was reported that a wooden fishing canoe was crossing the boat’s path. The Nollywood production crew were excited and there was rowdiness in the boat. The rowdiness in the boat distracted the driver and he did not look out as required. The boat was on high speed and the crossing canoe was moving much slower. The only occupant of the fishing Canoe was a 16 year old male.
