    This is sad. May God grant his fsmily fortitude to bear the loss. And may his soul rest in perfect peace!

    @ Arik Air, the authorities of this airline need to put some strict health measures into practice. I personally have a thing for this Arik. The times i av travelled using them, i am cautious. The insecticide they spray which affects one’s proper breathing, regardless of people who may react to it, the deafning noise to give you a headache which can last a week……much hazards one is exposed to travelling internationally with Arik. My brother in-law came in from london, as soon as he got off Arik plane, he was bleeding thru his nose and was rushed to the hospital, thank God for his life.
    My advice to Arik Airline, other international airlines use insecticides not harmful to the human health, why cant Arik emulate that. Or better still ask the passengers to cover their nostrils for a while before spraying ridiculously.
    You guys at Arik need to be more concerned towards safety of your passengers while travelling and not causing them more harm healthwise!
