Senior Special Assistant to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Media and Publicity, Mr Laolu Akande, in an updated statement last night, said a total of 12 people were on board the VP’s chopper, which crash-landed in Kabba.
Aside from Osinbajo, there was the  Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Prof Stephen Ocheni, senior presidential aides and the crew.
  Akanded stated, “Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, departed Abuja around 1pm today on a chopper ride to Kogi State in continuation of the Family Chats & Next Level engagements.
“Prof Osinbajo headed first to Kabba, and while landing at the Kabba Stadium, the helicopter suddenly skidded sideways until it halted on its side few metres away from the intended resting spot.
“Alongside VP Osinbajo, the Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Prof Stephen Ocheni, senior presidential aides, security officials and the crew; there were a total of 12 people on board. Everyone came out safely after the incident.
“We are grateful to God for His protection and safety, and we thank the crew and security personnel for their prompt response and service. We are also grateful for the tremendous expressions of concern and affection, as well as prayers from all.
“As is procedural, a full investigation into the causes of the incident would be conducted by aviation authorities.
“The Vice-President is continuing the planned engagements in Kogi State according to plan.”
