Lagos Commits to Employing Heroes of Oba Akran Helicopter Crash

The Lagos State Government has fulfilled its pledge to employ the hero of the tragic helicopter crash on Oba Akran Avenue, Ikeja, on Aug 1, 2023. Following Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s visit to the scene where he met the two heroes, the decision was made to offer employment to the qualified individual who demonstrated exceptional bravery as first respondant during the incident. Mr Asije Bright has been employed as a fireman.

Margaret Adeseye, Director Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, announced that the selected hero, who played a crucial role in the initial response to the crash, will undergo rigorous training to become a firefighter. This training will prepare him for the responsibilities ahead.

It is important to note that only one hero out of the two involved could be employed due to qualification criteria.
