Only 2people died,wao.For our country everybody is sure to die. Our leaders,pls don't kill us all in the names of plane crash,boko haram,road traffic accidents due to bad roads and death from minor illnesses due to inadequate hospital facilities.Take a que from other countries .Settle into government and think of how to better our lives instead of thoughts of succeeding yourself in power.
Be God conscious!!!!!

With joy in my heart so heavy that my fingers shake as though I had parkinsons do I type these words. My best friend with whom I've shared every childhood,teenage and adult memories was aboard that plane. He and I often have this endless debate about the existence of God,I'm atheist by the way but I think he finally convinved me there's a God cos only a supreme being could have saved him. I probably would have died too if my 'Frankie' went away. I'm presently at the hospital where 'Frankie' and other surviving victims are receiving medical attention,I even missed my nephew's birthday party to fly all the way to SF....and to the deceased,may their souls rest in peace. And Linda Ikegi,thumbs up for the good work!

The difference between America n Nigeria when it comes to resque mission can not be covered in 200 years. If it were to happen in a Nigerian airport, I'm sure no one will survive. May God help us!

This is tragic even though just two lives were cut short. May the souls of the departed school girls rest in peace and those injured quick recovery with peace. It is scary to travel with the bird especially uncommon names with history of accident.

Eeeh! Did you see how badly burnt this plane was?! Yet, only TWO people died!!! Abasi! this is an applause to an ultra fast emergency rescue operation? Naija, naija, naija, how many times did I call you? You need to LEARN! It is not that planes dont crash even in the most developed of countries but the reduction of casualties that matter! At the same time, my heart goes out to the unfortunate two, may their gentle souls rest in peace, Amen.

Linda, perhaps your last paragraph should start as "Of the 180 people..." The numbers presented don't add up to 307......

How fake can u be? u really believe dat der will be breaking news very hour? dub ass.

Anonymous said...

Linda, you need to be careful when reporting. When you are reporting deaths, you are never supposed to use the word 'only'. It is never 'only' one death because each life is priceless. Check reports from the likes of CNN, BBC and so on to see what I mean. I know you meant well.
