3  The Reason Behind Osibanjo Helicopter Crash

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo's AgustaWestland AW139 helicopter Crashed with him, and 11 others on board in the Kabba area of Kogi State. This happened in the month of February 2, 2019, upon crash-landing on a football field in Kabba with passengers and crew narrowly escaping death. 

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.
