Buhari Orders Probe Into Osinbajo's Helicopter Crash
Is there a conspiracy theory behind the helicopter crash of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Kabba, Kogi State on Saturday?
This is what the federal government will find after President Muhammadu Buhari said the accident would be investigated in line with the protocol of such incidents.
Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed that an investigation would be immediately set in motion.
Responding to a specific question on whether the incident would be investigated, he said, “We will follow all the necessary due diligence; that will be certainly done. That is the protocol and it is the order of things to happen.”
Asked further to speak on the condition of Osinbajo and other occupants of the ill-fated chopper, Akande said, “He is completely safe. He is actually at a road stop here in Kabba and he is addressing a mammoth crowd. He is safe and everybody is fine. Everybody got out of the chopper safely after that incident.
“The VP has since gone on to address people on the way. This is his second stop in Kabba right now.”
An eyewitness said that the helicopter managed to land at about 2.22pm at stadium in the town before its propeller suddenly pulled off.
Although the remote cause of the accident was not known as of the time of filing this report, it was learnt that the pilot of the helicopter might have found it difficult to land due to the dusty terrain of the stadium.
Immediately the incident happened, the Vice-President was said to have been immediately evacuated from the scene of the incident into a waiting vehicle and was thereafter driven in convoy with other political office holders to the palace of Obaro of Kabba on a courtesy call.
