Double Whammy

It’s been a tragic day for Nigeria.

 

A Nigerian airliner with 116 people on board including some senior officials crashed shortly after taking off from Lagos en route to the capital Abuja, the Government said.

 

The Nigerian Red Cross said yesterday the crash site had been located in Lissa, about 30 kilometres north of Lagos in Ogun state, and the aircraft appeared to have been destroyed.

 

“There were no traces of any survivors. The rescuers saw charred bodies,” said the Red Cross general secretary, Abiodun Orebiyi.

Stella Obasanjo, wife of Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, died Sunday at a hospital in Spain, officials said.

 

She had traveled to Spain to undergo surgery and died from complications resulting from that surgery, authorities said.

 

Obasanjo, 59, was “rushed to the hospital late Saturday and the condition became critical,” an official at the Nigerian Embassy in Madrid told CNN.

Unless you are a scammer. Can you imagine how many different Nigerian scam emails will be born from this?
