Lagos-bound helicopter carrying 13 passengers crashes

Bristow Helicopter

A chartered Bristow helicopter, with registration No. 5NBJQ, flying from Port Harcourt to Lagos has crashed, sources familiar with the incident have told PREMIUM TIMES.

Although the exact location of the crash is yet to be ascertained, an official of Bristow Helicopter, who declined to give his name, confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES on telephone.

The official said the company was still collating details of the incident and would make same public at the end of the exercise.

Initial reports said about 13 passengers were on board the craft at the time of the incident.

The identities of the affected passengers were unknown at the time of this report.

The new crash occurred less than six months after another helicopter belonging to the same company crashed in Lagos.

The chopper had on August 12, 2015 plunged into the Lagos Lagoon, killing six of the 12 persons on board.

    And this same company was still being allowed to fly with these helicopters after the first crash. Lets see if the same company will be allowed to, after this 2nd crash. Corruption ridden country.

      Rotimi Amaechi now has his work cut out as Aviation Minister. Let’s see if he’ll pass mustard.

      It’s surely more difficult to conduct search-and-rescue than to steal the treasury for oneself.

    I know some don’t subscribe to this ‘prophetic’ stuff but I would like to point out to all that Prophet T.B. Joshua of The SCOAN told people in NIgeria to pray ‘this coming Wednesday’ because of an incident that would occur. He then said that if prayers were offered, God would answer the prayers but we would still see the sign… I am a witness; I watched it live on Emmanuel TV.
