Plane Crash: I’m Alright, Says Agagu’s Son
Feyi, the son of late former Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Agagu, has said that he is alright and no one should worry about his state.
Feyi spoke when his friends, led by Jide Obanikoro, the son of a former Nigeria's ambassador to Ghana, Musiliu Obanikoro, visited him at the Surgical Emergency ward of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja where he and other victims of the Associated Airline plane crash were rushed to on Thursday.
The victim, who spoke normally, said he became unconscious after feeling the impact of the aeroplane hitting the ground but woke up later.
He had a neck support and some bandages but he giggled when he saw his friends wearing worried faces.
While being wheeled to the Intensive Care Unit for a body scan, the victim threw his right thumb up to his friends, saying 'nothing do me'.
A second victim, Femi Akinsanya, was seen on another bed talking with about seven of his relatives, including Hip Hop Musician, Sasha Alabi.
Akinsanya, who had a neck support around his neck, described his survival as a miracle.
Doctors were seen advising his pregnant wife not to move him to another hospital yet until he is stabilised.
Our correspondent was however prevented from taking pictures inside the hospital.
It was not all smiles at the hospital as a plump woman, said to be the wife of one of the dead victims, Chijioke Duru, was seen weeping profusely, rolling on the ground at the hospital.
She wailed, "Chjioke, I am finished, who will take care of our daughter, Chinasa. Why did you leave me? I am finished."
The woman subsequently started blabbing and demanded that her husband's corpse be handed over to her immediately. She was however taken away by another relative.
