Ten people drowned and another 20 remain unac counted for after a boat from Nigeria sank off the coast of Gabon, a police official said yesterday.
The boat had left Nigeria carrying West African clandestine migrants and was within 15 minutes of arriving in Gabon's capital Libreville when it went down late on Tuesday night. Gabonese authorities rescued 23 people and the search continued into yesterday.
"Last night, we had six bodies and since this morning we have found four more, which makes a total of 10 recovered bodies," said a member of the Nautical Brigade of Gabon's national police who asked not to be named.
Police said the survivors – from Benin, Nigeria and Burkina Faso-claimed to have each paid the boat's crew up to 500,000 CFA to take them to Gabon where they hoped to find work.
Local newspapers reported that the human traffickers attempted to extort more money from the immigrants and had begun throwing those who could not pay overboard.
Gabonese authorities said they were investigating the cause of the sinking.
Oil-rich Gabon's relatively high wages for manual labourers have made the central African nation a popular destination for regional migrants.
But entrance requirements are strict, pushing many to enter the country illegally, often using the dangerous sea route from Nigeria.
At least 45 people died when a wooden boat carrying 166 migrants bound for Gabon capsized off Nigeria in March.
Some 35 people taking the same route died after their boat sank off Cameroon in 2008.
White Nigerian is popular because of his ability to speak Hausa and Pidgin English fluently despite being white. He recently concluded his NYSC in Nigeria and proudly claims to be a Nigerian with only the Nigerian international passport.

Finally, Baby Kimye has a name! E! News has confirmed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's little daughter is named - North West.
A source close to the couple confirms to E! News that the girl's name is North West, with no middle name. According to a source, "They will call her Nori for short!"
"She has black straight hair! Lots of it! Looks like a good mix of both of them (Kanye and Kim) but more like Kim," says the source.
Woow....North West? Really? This people have gone bunkers! I guess they are not the first in hollywood to practice this madness. Michael Jackson named his last child BLANKET and we are yet to understand the name of Beyonce and Jay Z's baby BLUE IVY! Even Meryl of Big brother Africa named her kids MONKEY and HAPPY FEET respectively.
There is power in names people!

Residents from various parts of Lagos have been coming to catch a glimpse of a baby allegedly born with a miniature Quran at 9, Oguntade Street, Shasha area of the state. (crowd at the residence where the baby was born)
Incidents like these are scientifically impossible, but residents of the area say it is true even though some of them confessed that they did not see the baby clutching the miniature Quran, the holy book of the Muslims. They were only told about it.
It took efforts for P.M.NEWS reporters to gain access into the one-room apartment of the baby's parents as a result of the crowd that took over the place.
The mother of the baby, Kabirat Lamidi, a 32-year old hairstylist, said right from the conception of the baby, she had been sick.
She said when the baby refused to come out after 11 months, she went for a scan where it was shown that she had an object in the womb with the baby.
The Ede, Osun State indigene who said she had been married for 10 years, said she was shocked to discover that few seconds after the baby was delivered, she pushed out a Quran.
"I have been hearing about such incidents and I have always insulted people thinking it could never happen. I believe it is a gift from Allah," she said.
She said as a Muslim, she was not even dedicated and did not know how to pray, expressing surprise that such an incident could happen to her.
The mother of three said she had always given birth in the hospital but that on this day, she went into labour so fast that she could not move.
"My advice to people is that they should henceforth watch their mouth. I didn't believe before now," she said.
Mrs. Saudat Olawuwo, a staff nurse with the Shasha Medical Centre who assisted with the delivery, said she was called by neighbours when the woman was in labour.
Mrs. Olawuwo with 17 years working experience, said the woman was supposed to put to birth on 16 May, but it did not happen.
"By the time I came the day she was in labour, the baby was already coming out. So I assisted her.
"After that, we were expecting the placenta, but the woman began behaving like one about to run mad. I was so confused.
"The woman was shouting that she wanted to push again and all of a sudden, the Quran, wrapped in nylon and stained with blood jumped out.
"Out of confusion, I ran out and called people who came to see. We also called a Muslim cleric around the area who came and prayed for the baby," she said.
Father of the baby, Luqman Lamidi, said he was in a drinking bar when he was called and told that his wife had delivered a baby with a Quran.
He said he did not believe until he came and saw the Quran covered with blood.
"I arrived home and saw a lot of crowd and could not even enter. In fact, I am surprised that a drunk like me could produce a child that came into this world with a Quran," he said, adding that he had become a changed person.
Chief Imam of Oguntade, Shasha, Alhai AbdulRafiu Opeloyeru Oyedokun, said he was the one who tore the nylon from the Quran after he was called to the place.
"When I came, people were still doubting if the object was a Quran or not, so I tore the nylon with blood on it publicly and everyone confirmed it."
As the yet to be named baby boy lay asleep, P.M.NEWS noticed that each time the Quran is placed on his chest, he consistently lifted his hands up and would not drop the hands until the Quran is taken off.
There was a big controversy in May last year following the alleged birth of a baby boy said to be clutching a miniature Holy Quran at birth.
The baby was born at a white garment church in Mushin, Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria.
While some disputed the claim, others said it was possible. A large crowd gathered at 1, Sonde Street, Ijeshatedo, Lagos home of the boy's parents as news of the birth spread rapidly.
His mother, Mrs. Kikelomo Ilori, 32, a Cosmetologist, told P.M.NEWS that he was born after she had carried the pregnancy for about 10 months.
"When my baby was delivered holding a Quran in his hand, the nurse said the Quran should be thrown away. But I insisted my mother must see it before any action could be taken," Kikelomo, who is a Christian, further explained.
Corroborating the story, Senior Rev. Victoria Yetunde Dada said during the pregnancy, Kikelomo was always coming to her for prayers and counselling.
"I advised her not to abort the pregnancy because she might die in the process. Again, I told her the foetus was sent by God and will be great," Apostle Mother Dada told our correspondent.
Reacting, Medical Director of Bodet Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, Dr. Bode Tawak said scientifically, it was not possible for a baby to be born holding a Quran.
"How big is the baby's hand to hold the Quran? How big is the Quran? How did the Quran get into her mother's womb? I don't know how a Quran can get into a womb. But there are things you can't explain," Dr. Tawak responded.
He said while the incident cannot be explained medically, in Nigeria many mysterious things happen.
A Kaduna-based medical practitioner, Dr. Munir Yusuf said from a medical point of view, it was not possible, but added that depending on the size of the Quran, it was possible metaphysically.
He explained that if the Quran is small enough to pass through the diameter of the vagina, with the child, it is possible.
In the same vein, a herbal medicine practitioner, Chief Dr. Bola Adegunloye believes nothing is impossible, but said too much importance must not be placed on the incident.
Question: When are you going to get married and have kids?
Dbanj: To tell you the truth, I would have been married if Mo'Hits had not broken up. The crisis really affected me and I had to start so many things afresh. Just like my mentor 2Face Idibia, I will be married and have my own kids one day.
Question: How much do you miss Don Jazzy?
Dbanj: I really miss Don Jazzy and I miss the whole Mo'Hits crew. But are we talking about the engine or about the whole car?
Question: How much would you say D'Banj is worth now?
Dbanj: Oshee! I can tell you that Eja nla (big fish) is comfortable. But sincerely, I don't know how much I am worth because I have not really taken my time to check. In fact, I don't even want to check so that it won't get into my head. But I must confess to you that God is really involved in my life right now.
Awwww! We miss you and Don Jazzy together too.
Ok, my son wants to celebrate his birthday, how much for you to come and perform "Azonto" for us? Heheheeh! Wizzy is a big boy now abi? God dey!
Well this is a he said, she said situation abi? Oya we are keeping our fingers crossed....eagle eyes are watching! Hehehe

Drake claims Chris Brown refuses to bury the hatchet in their long-running and violent feud ... and what's more -- Drake says, "I get a feeling it could end really badly."Drake had finally broken his silence about his war with Brown to GQ ... even talking about the bloody bar fight that went down inside W.i.P. in NYC last June. "I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name," Drake says ... "I really don't. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man."He continues ... "But that's not going to happen. I'm not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I'm not going to back down."Drake says he's "embarrassed" by the media coverage ... saying, "Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there."And then comes Drake's dark prediction ... saying the feud "distracts from the music. But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess.""If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly."
