The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) told News Investigators that the 5N BJQ that was flying about 1500 feet above sea level was found in Lagos after it was reported missing.

Reports indicated that the small aircraft had a controlled ditch, which is an action taken by pilot, when he notices that something was wrong.

We gathered that Nigeria’s Mission Centre (MCC) of Cospas SARSat picked the distress alert beacon from the helicopter with above co-ordinate.

“NEMA immediately raised search and rescue team with Nigeria Navy and NIMASA along with other agencies for immediate response,” reports said.

All the passengers on board, including the crew are alive.
