    This is saden, on Saturday Death was recorded on both Oyo/Ogbomoso road & Lagos Ibadan express road. A empty fuel tanker overtake a bus which crush the bus he overtake, numbers of life were recorded dead. Similar things happen on Lagos Ibadan express way. Still in sorrow and sympathising with the victim family, another tragedy befall the country yesterday as the plane crash and the BokoHaram attack on Nigerian Citizen. This really calls for prayers, real prayer from both end. From my part & on behalf of my family WE sympathize with this Family and Nigeria as well. God bless us & God bless our Nation Nigeria.

    A survivors story
    PWOJ: I was on this same dana plane 23 may. It was delayed from take off from mm2, I saw the Philippine mechanics with buckets draining out hydraulic fluid under the left side under carriage tyre mechanism, a part was taken out but not replaced, yet we were told to board. I told the flight supervisor my name that am an aerospace sys engr and am concerned at the operational state of the plane, the guy told me to see the pilot, I did, he was a Caribbean decent capt & nw zealand asian looking co pilot, he confirmed work was done and asked how I knew, I said I saw it from d windows of the airport and the part was not replaced that I aslo saw the mechanics Philippine & indian guys under the plane, he told me don’t worry if its not ok we won’t fly. I pinged my family and friends of wot I saw and the names of the people I spoke to. Should anything happen as well as asking that the plane is taken off but am just a simple powerless passenger. We landed and the pilot waited at d door to shake me as to say I told u. Sadly this plane wasn’t taken off service to sort out the hydraulic leak or landing gear problem because it was still making money for indians in Dana, now Dana plane has killed my friend Ehime, levy & ijeamaka & 150 others. All because they refused a simple precaution advice over their financial wants. My story can be checked from dana airline/mm2 logs. May God burn you all in Dana.
    PLS Send this to mr president governors senators reps nigerians &even to people selling Dana products anywhere before its covered up

    Been in tears since dis incident,cos I lost friends like amina bugaje and uche ulasi, am not putting d blame on any1, I pray GOD forgives dana for carelessly managing their aircraft, lets admit d fact dat if d plane had landed safely at d airport,they still would hv boarded passengers back to abuja,isn’t dat carelessness? I advice all dis local airlines should be checked over and over again before departure and after landing. We r so tired of loosing loved ones on disasters we can avoid.. Its time to initiate proper measures in d activities of our aviation sector. May d souls of our lost loved ones find peace in heaven. amen. GOD help Nigeria
