Flight Lieutenant Taiwo O Asaniyi was the pilot of the ill-fated Beechcraft 350 plane that crashed in Kaduna and he was preparing for his wedding.
He did his introduction in March. His family in Ibadan is devastated with the loss of their shining star.
The Nigerian Air Force has already sent a delegation to his family in Ibadan. Air Commodore Peter Simeon, who is the Commander of the 671 NAF Base detachment, Akobo, Ibadan, led other officers to the late pilot’s residence in Ibadan to console the aged parents.
Responding on behalf of the family, Deacon Adeleke, who thanked the NAF for the early visit, pleaded for immortalisation of all the deceased. He advised that the government should always remember the families of the deceased.
The man who is supposed to be his best man on the wedding day has remained inconsolable.
May his soul and that of other victims in the unfortunate air crash of yesterday rest in peace.
