President Goodluck Jonathan has described the death of four senior police officers in an helicopter crash in Jos, the Plateau State capital, northcentral Nigeria, today as as an “unfortunate and a temporary setback especially at this time that all security forces are making concerted efforts to guarantee security throughout the country”.

In a statement issued on his behalf by Reuben Abati, his spokesperson on Wednesday, the President said he “received with utmost sadness the tragic news of the death of senior police officers in a helicopter crash today in Jos, Plateau State”.

“President Jonathan commiserated with the families of the bereaved and the Police High Command, urging them to take consolation in the fact that these fine officers died in the course of national assignment,” added the President.

“The President prayed that Almighty God will accept the souls of the deceased and grant the nation the fortitude to bear this national loss,” he concluded.

Five children, residing in the four houses that suffered from the impact of the crash, were also killed while a woman has been extricated from the rubble and taken to a hospital.

Rescue officials have since gathered at the scene of the crash and it is expected that the casualty figures may rise.

  1. Hmm! God have mercy on Nigeria,’ good people never last’ this was a promising officer looking forward to become the next inspector general of police by inspectors, rank and file and even honest officers; after seen his antecedents as a CP Niger State, this was an officer who will not take money or gift from his subordinate rather he will gave them generously. It will be hard to fill the pace .may his soul rest in peace amen!!!

  2. it is a painfull event that took place there, but we still pray that, God in his infinite mercy accept the deperted souls in that incident for they went out there to do the nation’s work and most especially the deceased famillies. But the question we should ask is that, at their deperture, is there any sign of break down of the elicopter?

  3. Only Almighty Allah can saves & protects us in this nation ‘cos for there is no security over those who are to secure…Definately ours lives are already endanger.We should only be prayerful.
