A religious organisation, under the aegis of Coalition of
Christian Groups For Good Governance (Nigeria and
Diaspora), on Saturday called on the Federal Government
to commence an investigation into the crash of the
helicopter carrying Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in
Kabba, Kogi State.
The coalition also sought for prayers on behalf of the
Vice President, who, it said, had escaped plane crash
twice within seven months.
The President of COCGOG and Chairman, Congress of
Northern Nigeria Christians, Rev. Daniel Kadzai, these
demands in a statement issued in Abuja.
“Similar suspicious incidents have happened in the past
without probe. This particular one should be thoroughly
investigated,” he stated.
Kadzai recalled the case of late Governor Patrick
Yakowa of Kaduna State, former National Security
Adviser (NSA), late Gen. Andrew Owoye Azazi and late
Assistant Inspector-General of Police, John Haruna “who
lost their lives in mysterious Helicopter crashes.”
Kadzai, immediate-past President of YOWICAN –
Christian Association of Nigeria (Youth Wing) said, “Till
date, nothing had been said about the investigation into
the Helicopter crashes of these great people. This has
raised serious suspicion on the frequent crash involving
top Christians in Nigeria.
“While we call on Christians all over the country to pray
fervently against any form of manipulations against the
Vice President, Pastor Yemi Osibanjo, we also demand
thorough investigation into the cause of the crash.
“Similar suspicious incidents happened in the case of
late governor Patrick Yakowa of Kaduna State, late
Andrew Owoye Azazi and late AIG John Haruna who lost
their lives in mysterious Helicopter crashes. Till date,
nothing has been said about the investigation, thus
raising serious suspicion on the frequent crash involving
top Christians in Nigeria.”
Last week, COCGOG protested against the suspension of
the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen by
President Muhammadu Buhari, with a call on all
Christians nationwide to “be at alert and await further
directives”, from the organisation
Kadzai had appealed to the international community to
prevail on Buhari to “toe the part of honour and reverse
the ambiguous adventure.”
“From the body language of VP Osinbajo and other
Christians in government, it is obvious that they are
either under threat or under some powers in Aso Rock.
Hence, they need the prayers of all Christians in Nigeria
for spiritual deliverance,” he stated.
