From the release, Akin Olateru, the AIB Commissioner stated that the crew of the flight, which took off from the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport for Kabba, sighted the intended landing area – a football field – and "approached with the speed of 20 kt to about a 100 ft, and entered a hover to land".
But "at about 50 ft above ground level, the flight crew lost visual contact with the ground and external surroundings", making the helicopter experienced a hard landing and finally rolling onto its right side.
