The parents of Joel Okechukwu (11), Chisom Okechukwu (9) and Esther Okechukwu, sent them on an errand yesterday afternoon and a few minutes after the young children left the house, the Dana plane crashed into their home, killing their parents, Jeremiah and Josephine Okechukwu.
The children were this afternoon rescued by Governor Fashola who was at the crash site to inspect the sad incident. The governor asked his aides to take the children to Government House where they will be taken care of until relatives of the children show up. The children were wandering near the crash site when Governor Fashola spotted them and heard their sad story.
What a kind gesture from the Governor.. 🙂
