The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the girls were among the 10 that decided to go for a swim after collecting vegetables for their meals at River Rima banks.

The Deputy Governor of the state, Alhaji Samaila Yombe, led top government officials to attend the funeral prayers and commiserate with the families of the deceased.

NAN also reliably gathered that two of the deceased girls were from the same family.
