Bristow helicopter crashed because government no longer appease sea goddess – Oba of Oworo


The Traditional ruler of Oworonsoki, Oba Basiru Oloruntoyin Saliu has explained why the Bristow helicopter crashed yesterday.

He attributed the cause of the incident to the refusal of the government to pay attention to tradition, noting that the crash might have been caused by the lagoon goddess.

Speaking to Vanguard on phone, the monarch said as soon as the incident occurred, he deployed all his chiefs and princes to the scene to assist in the rescue operation.

“The government no longer pays attention to traditional rites which is necessary to prevent such occurrences. For instance, how many times have we appeased the goddess this year?

“An occurrence like this may be caused by the goddess because no human being can depict the depth of the lagoon; but if the goddess is appeased, she would have prevented such occurrence,” Oba Saliu said.

The helicopter belonging to Bristow Helicopters (Nigeria) crashed yesterday with 12 people on board, into the Lagoon near the Oworonsoki end of the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
