The AIB Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer Akin Olateru disclosed this during a brief meeting at the Bureau’s headquarters at Murtala Muhammed Airport Lagos.


Olateru said the chopper, Agusta Westland W 139 Caverton Helicopters, crashed landed as an effect of a brownout generated during its landing in a dry dusty environment.

He maintained that Caverton should have carried out an assessment and risk test at the Kaaba stadium before the flight.

Olateru, however, stated that investigations are still ongoing and full details of the report will be released as soon as possible.
