The rest of the passengers where saved by boat rescue drivers, he reamined the only casualty of that accident.

The while speaking in that 2018 described her husband as a hero who always puts others before himself, she called him a selfless man.

His Heroism is rare in the world, we encourage everyone to continue to pray for his wife and lovely kids.

Nigeria are clamoring for his recognition as a national hero, something I feel he deserves.

May the soul of this rare hero Joseph Blankson continue to rest in peace. We will remember
