Governor Patrick Yakowa's death...

From Linda's blog:
Late former governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa came to Oronto Douglas' father's burial in a private chopper he hired, but when leaving the venue, he abandoned the chopper he came in and decided to join Gen Azazi in a Navy helicopter en-route Port Harcourt. Five minutes into the return flight, the military helicopter exploded in the skies as it came down in flames, killing all the six people on board.
Scene of the crash
There are people who believe the crash wasn't an accident. The Navy said the helicopter was in great shape...the pilot was why did the helicopter explode in the air? President Jonathan has ordered a probe into the crash

Quite a number of Muslim youths jubilated over Yakowa's death on Saturday. Yakowa was Kaduna's first Christian governor

Meanwhile, all commercial activities came to a halt today in Kaduna over Yakowa's death. The government declared today a work free day to mourn the amiable governor.

Also the deputy governor, Dr. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, has been sworn-in as governor of Kadunna
