Remembering the #Biafra Kids: The Sosoliso Air Crash 10 years later #HNNTravel #HNNMemorial

Grace Ilabor lost all 3 kids and Pastor Bimbo Odukoya among others
On 10 December 2005, Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 from Abuja to Port Harcourt crashed on landing with 110 people on board. 2 persons survived. Bimbo Odukoya (A popular Christian speaker) and over 50 students of Loyola Jesuit College, an Abuja-based secondary school, were among the dead. It is reported that a witness states that the plane was struck by lightning about 40 or 50 metres from touching down and the fuel in the wing caught fire and it exploded. This has not yet been confirmed by any authorities. Following the crash, president Olusegun Obasanjo ordered all Sosoliso planes grounded. An act of God and tragic story. Just last year a British Airways plane made an emergency landing in Birmingham after it was struck by lightning leaving Abuja to London. Bukola Saraki and Boko Haram Governor Shettima was in that one. One of these days Karma will meet the right people. 

Rest in peace to the many Biafran kids on that flight. Sosoliso Airlines operated flights to Enugu, Port Harcourt, Owerri, Abuja and Lagos.
