Nigerian Dies On Ethiopian Airlines’ Flight To China




A Nigerian, one Mr. Sylvanus Amachukwu Godwin, yesterday, slumped and died aboard an Ethiopian Airlines flight 606 en-route Addis Ababa to Guangzhou, China.

However, officials of the airline are yet to conclude investigations as to the actual cause of his death.

In a telephone conversation with Nigerian Consul General to China, Ambassador Wale Oloko, he told Vanguard last night that Godwin’s death was announced to the consulate when the aircraft landed at Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou, China.

The consulate was informed that the Nigerian collapsed while in the flight, adding that though first aid was administered on him, he died before the aircraft could reach China.


It was also learned that the corpse had been taken to the Aviation Hospital’s mortuary within the Baiyun International Airport complex for a post-mortem.

Ambassador Oloko said the mission is not restricting investigations on its part, noting that it had gone ahead to advise the management of Ethiopian Airlines to use the information on the reservation system to reach the family of the deceased in Nigeria, with a view to making arrangement for repatriation of the body in line with the international aviation regulations.

He also said that the airport and Ethiopian Airlines authorities were insisting on a comprehensive post-mortem.
