The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has identified the owner of the helicopter that landed on the Benin-Ore road to pick somebody.

NCAA also said it was aware of the video and an investigation is ongoing.

A viral video of a helicopter took over the social media over the weekend. 

The video showed a helicopter landing on the popular Benin-Ore road to pick somebody (unidentified). 

The incident led to a traffic snarl on the ever-busy road with road users unable to continue their journey for about five minutes.

In a statement by Mr. Sam Adurogboye, spokesperson for the NCAA, the helicopter with registration number 5N – BVQ and aircraft type AW139, is owned by Tropical Arctic Logistics Ltd.

“The pilot was compelled to land between Benin and Ore in an unscheduled diversion to pick up someone,” Adurogboye said.

He stated that the aviation authority had commenced an investigation to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the unscheduled diversion.

“As soon as the investigation is concluded, the outcome will be made public,” he said.
