Breaking News: Helicopter Crash Kills One, Injures Six In Oku
News reaching us holds that a military helicopter crashed in the early hours of this morning, leaving one person dead while six others sustained severe injuries.
The main victim in question is said to be the interim commissioner of Noni, Ngwe Wiyou Victor, who died from the crash, while among those injured are the Divisional Officers of Bum, Oku and Noni, according to a press release issued by MINDEL.
The DOs were being airlifted from Bamenda where they had converged few days ago in order to meet with visiting Prime Minister, Joseph Dion Ngute.
The military helicopter transporting them developed a technical fault when it was trying to land in Oku, probably to drop off the DO of that jurisdiction.
