A pregnant lady, Ajah Lilian Chinenye, many passengers and crew had a close shave with death on Thursday while aboard a plane from Abuja to Kano.
Mrs Chinenye took to Facebook on Friday morning, to share details of the terrifying experience. Read below:
PLEASE HELP ME THANK GOD!!!
God of the Air yesterday delivered me & others from a plane crash. On a plane enroute Abuja to Kano that was knocked off course thrice by sand storm, with phones, caps, books falling off from people, heads hitting the plane roof, a child whose mother had unbuckled his belt falling off her hand like it happens in AMERICAN movies, with my toe nail being scratched and wounded by a seat with women and children screaming and shouting, with all Christians speaking in tongues, calling on Jesus and praying and the Muslims screaming Allah uwak ubarrrr. With the plane staying off course for an additional 1 hour 12 minutes for a flight that should have been for 40 minutes only. And I sit there glueing tightly to Jehovah and at intervals rubbing my baby bump, calling on the God of the firmaments, God of the Air, the God who created Sand storms, the God who holds the pillar of my life, Otonmiribetsida, the Ocean divider, the master of the universe to give his angels charge over us so we do not dash to the earth from the air and he ANSWERS. The Oyinbo captain and his crew ceases communication with us for close to an hour after staying off course the sand storm and we hover on air without knowing where we are until we finally begin to see land beneath us and enjoy this ROUGH landing with people scampering to their feet to de-board even before the plane comes to a stand still. People roll on the floor in the waiting area thanking God… Somebody help me thank JEHOVAH…Am still in shock, I do not know how to thank him. Ever since I’ve been flying, I have NEVER experienced this near-crash-death occurrence. He’s our deliverer indeed…
