Nigerian Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo Survives Helicopter Crash

A helicopter carrying Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo crash-landed on Saturday in Kabba, Kogi state.

Nobody was hurt in the incident, as the vice president and his aides were pulled out of the helicopter safely.

“We are safe and sound! Thank you to everyone who has expressed concern and thank you to the crew who managed the situation well. We believe that God will continue to keep us and Nigeria safe even as we go higher,” Osinbajo said via his official Twitter handle after the incident.


Nigeria is preparing to hold its presidential election on 16 February, and Osinbajo will once again deputize President Muhammadu Buhari who is seeking a second term in office.
