Gloria Ugolee, a sister of media personality, Emmanuel Ugolee takes to social media to mourn the death of her friend-the pilot of the ill-fated helicopter that crashed in Opebi, Lagos state on Friday, August 28.
The helicopter belonging to Quorom aviation was reported to have had three crew members in it. While two of the crew members had died at the scene, the pilot, Chika Ernest, was found alive and was rushed to the hospital.
