Dana crash: Imo declares Tuesday special prayer day

BY CHINENYEH OZOR

OWERRI – Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, has declared Tuesday  “a special prayer session” for the repose of the souls of the victims of the ill-fated Dana plane crash of Imo origin.

Okorocha made this known when he paid a condolence visit to families of late Prof Celestine Onwuliri and Mr. Ike Ibe, who lost his wife and daughter in the crash.

He prayed God to give the bereaved families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, while urging relevant authorities to put stringent measures in place to ensure safety in the Nigerian airspace.

Governor Okorocha appealed to the citizenry and particularly religious leaders in the state to join in the prayer session in honour of the sons and daughters, who lost their lives in the crash.

It will be recalled that no fewer than 24 Imo citizens lost their lives in the sad incident which occurred on June 3, 2012.
