Sosoliso Plane Crash Survivor Remembers Victims 14 Years After

On 10th December, 2005, Nigeria was thrown into mourning as news of Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 plane crash broke. The accident led to the death of 107 passengers, including female preacher, Pastor Bimbo Odukoya, as well as some students going on a school trip.

The ill-fated plane left only two survivors, one of whom is 30-year-old Kechi Okwuchi who was one of the school students on the flight. Kechi was 16 years-old at the time.



According to reports, the flight from Abuja crash-landed at Port Harcourt International Airport. It slammed into the ground and burst into flames. Immediately after the crash, seven survivors were recovered and taken to hospitals, but only two people survived. Kechi is one of the two survivors.

Taking to twitter on Tuesday to remember those who died in the crash, Kechi tweeted:

“On this day 14 yrs ago, my life almost ended at 16. Today I am 30 yrs old & so grateful to God for allowing me to live for the precious souls that were lost on December 10 2005. I am also grateful to you all, for your support as I live my dream. RIP angels #NeverForgotten.”
