At least three people have been killed and 90 missing in a boat accident in Cameroon’s Atlantic coast on Monday, according to Punch.

Local authorities reported that the ferry, belonging to Cameroon’s shipping company, Achouka, sank off Cameroon’s Atlantic coast.

A Cameroon navy official said the ferry left Nigeria and was heading to Tiko wharf in Cameroon’s Southwest region.

The official said over 200 passengers were on board, adding that the navy rescued over 100 people from the ferry and over 90 others are still missing, while search and rescue efforts have continued.

The official said it was still unclear what caused the ferry to sink but preliminary investigations showed it encountered rough weather.
