An helicopter just crashed into a lagoon at the Oworosoki area of Lagos.
Although it not clear if its a military, commercial or private helicopter that crashed, the South-west Spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mr. Ibrahim Farinloye confirmed the incident.
He said already all the primary and secondary responders are moving in to ascertain the damage.
Speaking to THISDAY he said, “We don’t know exactly what happened but we have called the Nigerian Mission Control Centre (NIMCC) to confirm the distress signal.
“The centre will ascertain this through the COSPAS-SARSAT, also known as the beacon, which is a hi-tech satellite based equipment made by Russia, USA and Canada for search and rescue purposes.”
Headed by Navy Captain Michael Igwe the NIMCC will through the beacon assist NEMA and other responders in locating the distressed helicopter.
