Dec 15, 2012 – Helicopter That Crashed In Bayelsa State, Nigeria Killed Azazi, Yakowa, All Dignitaries On-board

Saturday the 15th of December is another bloody day in the history of Nigeria after an helicopter carrying top politicians and dignitaries crashed following a funeral in Bayelsa State Nigeria.

The fatal crash killed all the people on board.

We learnt the Governor of Kaduna State, Patrick Yakowa and the former National Security adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Andrew Owoye Azazi are among the casualties of this fatal helicopter crash.

Mr Fidelis Odunna, the spokesperson for Bayelsa State Police command who confirmed the crash said the disaster happened at Ogbia Creek.

Ogbia creek is located in Okoroba community in Nember Local Government Area of Bayelsa state.

We learnt the helicopter crash happened few minutes to 5pm following a funeral service that took place in Okoroba for the dad of Presidential adviser Oronto Douglas Oronto.

The helicopter that was carrying both the Governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa and ex-national security adviser, General Azazi from the aforementioned funeral crashed into Ogbia creek bursting into flames killing all the people on board.

Okoroba community residents who witnessed the crash, said top Nigerian politicians travelled to President Jonathan’s state of birth this weekend for Oronto Douglas’s father funeral.

President Jonathan wasn’t in Bayelsa state during the time of the crash because he attended RCCG Holy Ghost Night service in Lagos-Ibadan Expressway last night.

In March of this year, top Nigerian deputy police chief and 3 other officers died in a fatal helicopter crash that happened in Jos.

Also in June, 2012 popularly called black sunday, 163 people died in a Dana Airline crash that happened in Iju Ishaga area of Lagos State, Nigeria.

      IIf comments like this can be made by Nigerians, are we sure we can live together? What is the presidentt’s role in this? Some Nigerians need to have their brains checked in a psycho hospital.

    Let them live but die 4 dia trespasses. But let phisical investigation by the authorities, aswell as spiritual investigation by there witch doctors be carried out so as to find the mystery behind this. Many things are left to be told. POLITICS

    Wen God is set to bless anybody/nation, He kills and destroys any obstacle trying to stand in ur success but He (God) won’t act until u declare the words against anything/anybody that is tryin to stand in ur way. My prayer is, may God continue to flush all d obstacles to Nigeria’s growth and grant the soul of those crash victims a perfect rest in His bossom… Amen!!
