A Nigerian identified as Mr. Sylvanus Amachukwu Godwin, with Nigerian with Passport Number A06011089 aboard an Ethiopian Airlines Flight 606 en-route Addis Ababa to Guangzhou, China allegedly slumped and died of high grams of drug in body.
Indications are that the late Godwin may have died of some drug in his body system but the airline authorities are yet to conclude investigations as to the proper cause of his death.
In a telephone conversation with Nigerian Consul General to China, Ambassador Wale Oloko, Godwin’s death was announced to the consulate when the aircraft landed at the Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou, China.
The consulate was informed that the Nigerian collapsed while in the flight and though first-aid measures were administered on him, he unfortunately died before the aircraft could reach China.
It was also learnt that the corpse has been taken to the Aviation Hospital’s mortuary within the Baiyun International Airport complex for expected post mortem to determine the cause of the sudden death.
Ambassador Oloko noted that the Mission is not restricting investigations on its part and has gone ahead to advise the management of Ethiopian airlines to use the information on the reservation system to reach the family of the deceased in Nigeria.
In light of the fresh development, Nigerians are urged to understand the dangers of drug trafficking and the negative impact on the country’s image.
