Scary moment Osinbajo, others were rescued out of crashed helicopter

Nigerian Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was safe after his helicopter crash landed in the north central state of Kogi, his spokesman said today.

Osinbajo also tweeted a video of him campaigning, thanking the crew and his well-wishers.

"We pray for the safety of the Vice President and that all his take-offs will culminate in an equal number of safe landings", Daramola said.

Many Nigerians including Fani-Kayode, however, believe that Adeyanju is simply being persecuted for his frequent criticisms of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, especially Osinbajo.

Thank you to everyone who has expressed concern, and thank you to the crew who managed and the situation well.

Wrestlemania 35: Triple Threat Main Event Still Planned
The 33-year-old star informed management, including Vince McMahon, of his decision to leave this weekend at the Royal Rumble . More than 48,000 fans at the Chase Arena exploded when Charlotte, the daughter of WWE legend Ric Flair got eliminated.

This is the second time Osinbajo is surviving a helicopter crash.

A source in the vice president's team said as the craft made an approach to land on the dusty, bare field, massive dust was thrown up causing the pilot to lose visibility. Some say one of the rotor blades detached from the mast as it was coming down.

He recalled the case of late Governor Patrick Yakowa of Kaduna State, former National Security Adviser (NSA), late Gen. Andrew Owoye Azazi and late Assistant Inspector-General of Police, John Haruna "who lost their lives in mysterious Helicopter crashes".

Correspondents say he is eloquent, unassuming and hardworking - and he has been admired for the way he has deputised for the 76-year-old president, who has suffered bouts of ill health over the last four years. Osinbajo and others on board were reportedly unhurt.
