UPDATE: Gloria Ugolee while mourning the death of her friend, Chika Ernest, the pilot of the ill-fated helicopter that crashed into a wall seprating two buildings in Opebi, Lagos state, claimed that the hospital waited for a police report before attending to him. This is totally FALSE and UNTRUE.
Taking to her Instagram page, she has now changed the narrative, writing: “Chika is gone! No I can Not confirm if it was the police report or something else, I wasn’t there, when I asked last night about his condition, that is what I was told. He is gone. We are all sad that he survived the crash but didn’t make it through, it truly would be unfair to blame anyone out of grief. Please lets allow the family to grieve.”
Gloria Ugolee, has taken to her social media page to mourn her friend, Chika Ernest, the pilot of the ill-fated helicopter that crashed into a wall separating two buildings in Opebi, Lagos state on Friday, August 28.
There were three crew members in the helicopter belonging to Quorom aviation, that flew into Lagos from Rivers state. While two of the crew members died at the scene, one of them who happens to be the pilot, Chika Ernest, was found alive and was rushed to the hospital.
Gloria however, revealed the late pilot died as the hospital waited for a police report.
She wrote ;
”Captain Chika Ernest,pilot of the plane crash in opebi Lagos this afternoon. He emptied the fuel tank to avoid explosion on impact,he crashed on a fence avoiding the roofs and house. Always looking out for others. My brother and friend since primary school, said he was in pH just this week, and now he is gone. Taken to the hospital but after taking all the videos for social media, they waited for police report untill he died. I miss you is an understatement. John11:23-25 my only consolation.”
