“On February 2nd, God gave me reason to know that but for his grace, we would have been consumed, when our helicopter crashed.
“When the crash occurred, for a moment there was complete silence. For a second, it occurred to me that if we had died that is what it would have been, complete silence. But we all got out without a scratch. God delivered us.
“God also delivered those in charge of our security, the government of Kogi State would have also been in trouble. We give God all the glory. I pray God will also be kind to you all also, that you will never be lacking in support, care and genuine prayers,” he said.
