Governor Yakowa Of Kaduna, Former NSA Azazi Dead In Helicopter Crash

By SaharaReporters, New York

Governor Patrick Yakowa of Kaduna State and former National Security Adviser Andrew Owoye Azazi apparently died in a helicopter that crashed today in Bayelsa State, a reliable source has told SaharaReporters.

Governor Yakowa and Mr. Azazi, a retired military general who served as chief security adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan, were among passengers in the ill-fated helicopter.

Nigeria's National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) had earlier indicated that the agency had activated a search for a crashed helicopter.

Our sources had earlier disclosed that the crashed chopper was carrying “some major political figures.” As at the time of going to press, Saharareporters was unable to confirm the identity of any other passengers in the ill-fated chopper.

Governor Yakowa and Mr. Azazi were among many political figures who reportedly attended the burial of the father of senior presidential aide Oronto Douglas. The funeral event took place in the Nembe area of Bayelsa State earlier today.  SaharaReporters learnt that the crashed helicopter was one of several helicopters that ferried some well-connected people to the funeral.

The crash comes on the heels of a plane crash on October 25, 2012 that has left Governor Danbaba Suntai of Taraba State brain-damaged. Mr. Suntai was moved to a hospital in Germany where he remains in poor shape, unable to recognize his visitors or to speak.

Azazi has passed on b'cos it was his time just like all those b4 him. If ur alive 2day 2 witness dis then it's meant 2 tell u dat; we all shall meet our Maker. If u want 2 do dat as a supporter of hatred, champion liers and master division then be my guest. What the deceased need 4rm us now r prayers not obnoxious remarks.

I can never rejoice over the

I can never rejoice over the death of anybody but let the truth be told. Why waste public funds to attend a funeral. Why do Nigerians waste resources for the dead why the living are in abject poverty. I am sorry for their death but the tears refused to flow. I shed my tears for the innocent 20 in Connecticut whose lives were cut short by a lunatic. I weep for them. May their souls rest in perfect peace Amen.

Jehovah is God any time every where

Some body said history has prepeated it self. I pray this is not a self made history forcefully made to repaet it self. I decrey in the name of in the name of Jesus, what ever is hidding concerning this death will be revealed and the God of all flesh will answer to all the maserminders of the bombed plane said to have crashed. Amen in Jesus name.

Dont get me wrong

They have started again.

They all know what they are doing and knows the cause as well.

The reason not for ordinary eye.

God save us.
