The helicopter conveying the vice president of Nigeria professor Oluyemi Oluleke “Yemi” Osinbajo and his team to a campaign rally crash-landed on Saturday in Kogi but no one was injured .
On Sunday, during a Thanksgiving message he gave in a service organised on his behalf by Pastor Adeboye he said it is apparent that pastor Adeboye has perceived an impending danger before praying for him.
He continued by giving the account of his Friday encounter with the pastor
On Friday, we went to (RCCG) camp; usually, I attend our Holy Ghost service. We came in very late from Akwa Ibom State. We arrived just in time for the grace at the end of the service. After that, our daddy in the Lord, (G.O) Pastor Adeboye, wanted to speak to me.
He asked me how things were going on, the campaign activities and all that, and I explained everything; what I was doing on the campaign trail and all of that, some of the challenges. He (Adeboye) then said I am going to pray for you. He said a prayer that turned out to be very interesting because usually, as you know, he doesn’t pray for long.
He said “Lord God Almighty, I want you to protect this man. You know how very dear he is to my heart. I want you to protect him. I found it very funny that he repeated it several times and then he prayed for favour and other things.
So, when the crash happened, immediately it dawned on me that the Lord God had led him to say that very special prayer. And the Lord God Almighty delivered us by His word that, even when 10,000 fall by our side, no harm whatsoever, will come near us.
Osinbajo thanked God for the gift of life and reeled out the names of those on the flight crew with him.
They are Labour Minister, Stephen Ocheni; & Mr Femi Osinbajo, my elder brother; Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser and Ambassador Abdullahi Gwary, SSA Foreign Affairs/Protocol.
“Others are Mr Laolu Akande, my spokesman; Dr Biodun Adelowo, my physician; Mr Doyin Adetuberu, security officer; and Ayoola Oladunni, (ADC) and others.
While explaining to aviation enthusiast via his whatsapp Status, Victor Oyejide an aviation expert said:
For the record, this is not the first time the vice president will be involved in chopper crash. He experienced a similar scenario in Gwagwalada, Abuja on June 7, 2018 in a helicopter conveying him. Thankfully there was no hurt.
In my opinion, the crash is due to BROWNOUT because of the state of the landing Zone.
In aviation, a brownout or brown-out is an in-flight visibility restriction due to dust or sand in the air. he continued .
However, speaking via its verified Twitter handle on Sunday Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc, the public limited company holding Caverton Helicopters Limited and Caverton Marine Limited, said it has released another helicopter to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
