Not long after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo escaped injury when his helicopter crash-landed in Kogi State, he continued with his campaigns in the state.

However, the incident did not deter the vice president from continuing with his engagements according to a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Laolu Akande.

Mr Akande in a tweet said, "VP Osinbajo's Chopper crash lands in Kabba, but he and the entire crew safe".

"The NAF wishes to state categorically that the helicopter that crashed in Kabba does not belong to the NAF or 011 PAF".
