Lagos Helicopter Crash: Why we can’t release the names of victims now – AIB | Vanguard
The Accident Investigation Bureau, AIB, yesterday explained that the delay in making the names of the six victims of Wednesday Bristow Helicopter crash in Lagos public is because the airline involved has not contacted the families of the victims in line with international aviation practice before making the names public. This is coming as the black box and the cockpit voice recorders have not been recovered from the crash site.
Making this disclosure yesterday, the Commissioner, AIB, Dr Felix Abali told aviation reporters that until the airline finish contacting the victims families, the Bureau cannot get the permission from them to make the names of the victims public. Abali also said he is personally in touch with the airline and will make the names public immediately he gets the nod from the airline.

The chilling development came as a 12-year-old Yazidi rape victim in Iraq told how her attacker insisted that what he was doing was not sinful – because she practised a religion other than Islam.
Some 5,000 women and girls from the minority sect were abducted last year by ISIS, with the terror group organising a system of sex slavery including sales contracts endorsed by its notorious courts.
