"Stop Using Military Choppers Like Taxis" – Senate

Senators Olubunmi Adetunmbi (ACN, Ekiti North), Ganiyu Solomon (ACN, Lagos) Babafemi Ojudu (ACN, Ekiti) and Uche Chukwumerije (PDP, Abia) queried why the crashed chopper meant for naval training was used as a shuttle bus for the burial of the father of a presidential aide, Oronto Doglas.

It is to be recalled that Saturday's helicopter crash killed the former Kaduna State governor, Patrick Yakowa; former National Security Adviser, Andrew Azazi and their aides.

Deputy Senate Leader Abdul Ningi said, "It is worrisome that in this country military choppers are used indiscriminately like taxis for social events. We must bring out a standard framework of how to use military helicopters."

The senate resolved to mandate Navy, Air Force and Aviation committees to investigate the frequency of air mishaps in the country.
