The owner of the helicopter that picked a passenger on the Benin-Ore Expressway has spoken on the development.
Femi Adeniji, who runs Tropical Arctic Logistics Limited, told the BBC that he didn’t understand why the video had caused such a fuss.
Adeniji said it was normal for the company to respond to emergency situations as there is no such public emergency service available – and they had done so six times in the last two months.
He said there was no truth in the speculation that the helicopter was called by a billionaire who wanted to escape the huge traffic jam.
Instead he said the man had been suffering from high blood pressure and his driver had panicked.
A doctor who was also stuck in the traffic was helping the man and the helicopter was called.
Adeniji told the BBC that the man suffered a stroke, hence the need to attend to the emergency.
