Lagos State governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola bringing hope into the lives of children orphaned by Dana Air plane crash on June 3, 2012

Outside the one hundred and fifty three people that lost their lives in the Dana Air crash of Sunday, hundreds of peole on ground may have also been sent to their early graves, when the aircraft slammed into their homes. The Airline actually renedered three children of the same parents orphaned. The children escaped death because they had gone on an errand for their now parents Mr.Jeremiah and Mrs. Josephine Okechukwu. They returned minutes later to find their parent buried under the rubbles of their crumbled building.

Since then, the children namely Joel, Chison and Esther Okechukwu all under the age of twelve have been wandering around the neighbourhood, until help came their way through governor of Lagos State Babatunde Raji Fashola. The governor as soon as he got wind of their plight, commanded his aides to take them to the government house in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos Nigeria for proper care pending when their parent`s relatives will come for them ;
