Federal Government’s team arrives in Bayelsa to probe helicopter crash

An investigative team of the Federal Government led by the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Dele Ezeoba, on Monday arrived in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, to begin an immediate probe into the crash of the naval helicopter at the weekend. And apparently worried about the spate of air disasters involving their colleagues, state governors have supported the Federal Government’s effort to probe the crash in Bayelsa. Indeed, the governors have resolved to employ an independent investigator to represent their interest in the probe. The crash in Okoroba community of Bayelsa on Saturday killed the Governor of Kaduna State, Patrick Yakowa, former National Security Adviser Gen. Andrew Owoeye Azazi and four other persons while returning from the burial of the father of the Special Adviser to the President on Research and Documentation, Mr. Oronto Douglas. The Bayelsa State Governor Henry Seriake Dickson, who received the investigative team at the Government House in Yenagoa, said the government and people of the state were eagerly awaiting the outcome of the probe into the crash of the ill-fated naval helicopter.
