Oworonshoki Lagos Bristow Chopper Crash Caused By Angry Sea Goddess – Oba Calls For Ritual

August 13, 2015 – Oworonshoki Lagos Bristow Helicopter Crash Caused By Angry Sea Goddess – Oba Calls For Ritual

A traditional ruler in Lagos state has blamed the State Government for the crash that killed six people in Oworonshoki area of Lagos yesterday.

Oworonshoki’s traditional ruler, Oba Basiru Saliu who spoke with reporters today said that the goddess of the sea could have saved the people who died in the crash but she didn’t because she had not been appeased.

Oba Saliu said the government of Lagos state no longer pay attention to important rituals that could have prevented such crash.

Hear what the Royal Father told reporters this afternoon.

“An occurrence like this may be caused by the goddess because no human being can depict the depth of the lagoon; but if the goddess is appeased, she would have prevented such occurrence.” For instance, how many times have we appeased the goddess this year?” Lagos no longer commits to necessary traditional rites to appease the goddess of the sea.”

Some people think the Oba’s statement is insensitive while others believe he is saying the truth.

Well it is too late to start the blame game.

Let the dead rest in peace.

    For those who care to listen, Please disregard this statement. There is no atom of truth in his claim. The cause of the crash could be as a result of inadequAte maintenance. Maybe the engine was faulty and was not properly checked. This man is funny sha! River goddess kwa! Na wah o! People dey for this life o! U didn’t tell us about that of Dana airline that crashed at IJU. Na land goddess cos dat one ni? And some people will still believe this! My condolences to all affected families and may the soul of the departed ones rest in the bosom of the almighty.

    What goddess? Lack of proper maintenance and outdated training manuals are probably to blame.

    Absolute nonsense and rubbish. Please when will people wake up from these ignorant practices that has constantly cluttered our path to progress and civilisation. Only God at anytime can decide who leaves this world or remains in it. Not some senseless goddess. We should be talking about investigation into mechanical failure or human error that could have led to this. We should be asking why our emergency units don’t have helicopters to airlift the injured to hospitals, are there competent aviation experts to investigate this incident? what safety and maintenance processes do we have in place?
