The Accident Investigation Bureau ( AIB ) has today revealed the reason why Vice President Yemi Osibanjo’s chopper crashed

The AIB Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer Akin Olateru disclosed that the crash occurred because it landed on a dry dusty environment.

This he revealed during a brief meeting at the Bureau’s headquarters at Murtala Muhammed Airport Lagos.

Olateru said the chopper, Agusta Westland W 139 Caverton Helicopters, crashed landed as an effect of a brownout generated during its landing in a dry dusty environment.

He said an assessment and risk test should have been carried out at the Kabba stadium before the flight.

He, however, stated that investigations are still being carried out and full details of the report will be released as soon as possible.

Osibanjo’s helicopter crashed landed in Kabba on Sunday, February 2, where he went for his door-to-door campaign.

This is not the first time the Vice President’s helicopter will be involved in such an accident.

In June 2018, his chopper was forced to land a few seconds after taking off from the Nigeria Customs Command and Staff College, Gwagwalada in Abuja.

The VP had gone to the college for the graduation ceremony of Senior Division Course 1/2018 participants.

The Ilorin Zonal Office of EFCC has secured the conviction of Ogundele Adeseye, 24, who was re-arraigned on a one-count amended charge bordering on internet fraud.

He was convicted by Justice Babangana Ashigar of a Federal High Court sitting in Ilorin, Kwara State, on April 10, 2019 after he pleaded “guilty” to the charge, following a plea bargain agreement.

He was previously arraigned on a five-count charge, which was later amended to one count after plea bargain agreement was reached.

The charge reads: “That you, Ogundele Adeseye, sometime in July 2018 or thereabouts in Ilorin within the jurisdiction of this honourable court by means of fraudulent trick that you are a white Caucasian and interested in having a relationship, obtained the cumulative sum of $500 (Five Hundred Dollars) in form of iTunes gift cards from one Chase Gliglia, an American Citizen whom you met on seeking.com website (sugarbabysite) by chatting with her using the email [email protected] and thereby committed an offence contrary and punishable under section 421 of the Criminal code act.”

In his plea, Ogundele said: “My lord, I have learnt my lessons, I have realized that crime and criminality is not good, I am pleading with your lordship to temper justice with mercy.”

In sentencing him, the trial judge held there was a need to enforce judgement that will serve as a deterrent to would-be internet fraudsters. In accordance with plea bargain agreement, I hereby convict the defendant and sentence him to six months imprisonment,” he said.

Ogundele, however, busted into tears when he was being led to Mandala Prisons by the prison officials.
