There has been another plane crash in Nigeria.
Today, an ADC plane leaving Abuja for Sokoto with over 100 people including the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Mohammadu Maccido, one of his sons, Senator Badamasi Maccido and his grandson crashed soon after take-off.
An entire family was wiped out as Senator Gandi, his mother, wife, three kids died in the crash.
One other family lost 4 children.
I don't even know what to say because I am shaking right now.
I am so angry. I believe the airline, aviation authorities etc.. should all be ashamed of themselves. Yes, air accidents happen but ours is becoming way too much. Many people were not even shocked. Is this the type of thing we should be getting used to? All reports indicate that rescue efforts were poor as usual. Its a damn shame.
I really sympathise with the families and also those whose family members and friends were victims of all the previous air disasters because this will surely open some sore wounds and bring back some devastating memories.
May their souls rest in peace. Here is the Manifest.
Reports say there are 7 survivors including 3 daughters of the Kogi State governor. I thank God for their lives.
