DANA plane crash: Chinese Men Who Cheated Me On Dana Queue Saved My Life


Ihezuo has been thanking God for her life as she narrowly missed the doomed DANA flight 992.

She initially went to the Arik airlines stand, but their plane was fully booked, so she headed for Dana Air where she joined a queue for the ticket.

“We were on the queue and it was my turn to buy the ticket. I was rummaging my bag to bring out money to pay for the ticket when two Chinese men who were behind me gave money to the cashier and paid for the remaining seats. I was very angry and their action generated a verbal exchange between my husband and the cashier.

“The Chinese men were not even sorry for their action, instead they and their girlfriends made jest of us, waving the tickets in the air and making fun of us; we were so annoyed and we decided to postpone the trip.”

She added that she had yet to reach the house when she got reports that the Dana plane had crashed.

The mother of four said that family members that were waiting for them at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos cried when they heard about the incident. They thought that both mother and daughter had perished in the crash.

She stated that her church members in Abuja also thought she had died until they were notified that she did not board the aircraft.

Ihezuo said, “Since the incident, I have just been thanking God because He was the one that kept us. I have been rolling on my knees in thanksgiving since last Sunday and my knees are sore,” she said as she lifted up her skirt to show her bruised knees.

She stated that since she started flying about a year ago, the Dana flight was the first she would see that was fully booked, “I am familiar with most of the crew members because I have been patronising the airline for some time; I feel so bad for the crew and passengers.”

Ihezuo added she had purchased a luxury bus ticket for her mother who was going to stay with her eldest daughter at Festac, Lagos following her refusal to board a flight.

  1. Thank God for her and for those who lost their life R.I.P. For the cashier and all Nigerians let us stop treating all this foreigners in Nigeria as God mostly all the Chines they hate us they don’t treat us nicely in their country as we do in Nigeria, seriously they don’t like us for one thing they only calm down when they are in our country but when they are in their country they just don’t want to see us.

    For example in Malaysia their is one of my friend dating a Malaysian girl and they even plan to marry each other but the lady mother said no she don’t want her to marry the black guy and the girl asked her why and she said she don’t know, she just don’t like their color been black that she just don’t like them.

    And many more like that, even in their market if we want to buy things they have different price for foreigners and for locals, they sell for us in higher rate and they sell for their citizen in normal price, please Nigerians let us check all this and let stop been too loyal to them in our country.

    We know we are friendly people we love to see other people in our country but when they don’t love to see us in their country so let stop been nice to them and let treat them the way they treat us here and in other places.

  2. All that happened are signs of destiny. In life, we sh’d always believe sometimes God use our enemies to safe us from danger and make us see it as an obstacle at that particular time.
    Nigerians, lets have total submission of our life to will of God alone and stop godfatherizing things in our life.

  3. thank God for that deliverance, but be careful not to let the death you escaped from the crash come through tetanus; those bruises were never God demand for saving you. learn to appreciate him better other than endangering the life He has saved.
