Nigeria’s vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, has survived after his helicopter crash landed in Kogi State.
Laolu Akande, his spokesperson confirmed this via a tweet today.
“VP Osinbajo’s Chopper crash lands in Kabba, but he and the entire crew (are) safe. He is continuing with his engagements and plans for the day in Kogi State.”
This is the second time Mr Osinbajo is surviving a helicopter crash.
He narrowly escaped death after his chopper crash landed shortly after take-off in Gwagwalada area council, June last year.
Professor Osinbajo later posted a video of himself on instagram today, waving as the Kogi residents cheered him on.
He said that the helicopter he was on had crashed but that himself and the crew were fine. He thanked God for his survival and said his ‘next level’ work would go on as planned.
