‘My husband shouldn’t have been in Oct 3 crash’

Felix Fatoye

Olaide, the wife of Felix Fatoye, a flight technician with the Associated Airlines has said that her husband was not meant to be on the aeroplane which crashed on October 3 2013.

Felix died last Wednesday at the burns unit of Gbagada General hospital, Lagos after sustaining injuries among several other persons, when the plane conveying the corpse of former Ondo State governor, Olusegun Agagu, crashed in Lagos, a few minutes after take-off.

He was reportedly rushed to the burns unit of the hospital, where doctors battled to save his life until he died of infections caused by the severe burns he had sustained.

The distraught wife of the deceased, who is pregnant, told PUNCH Metro while fighting back tears, that Felix’s infections had continued to spread despite the doctors’ efforts.

She said the airline had promised to take him abroad for treatment before his demise.

Olaide said, “He died on Wednesday night. We had been struggling to keep him alive but his infections continued to spread. The doctors used different antibiotics to treat him at different times. Three weeks after the crash, the airline promised to fly him abroad for treatment but unfortunately, he died.”

Felix, a graduate of the Ibadan Polytechnic, also has a one-year-old child with Olaide.

Our correspondent, who visited the deceased’s Facebook page, observed that his last words on the social network on May 13, 2013, were, “God I thank you, for your grace that is sufficient in life and my family. Glory be to your name Halleluyah. Good morning my well-wishers.” 30-year-old Felix was said to have been employed by the Associated Airlines, in 2007.

Olaide said, “My husband’s name was not on the flight manifest because he was not meant to be on the flight originally.

“Felix was called the night before the air crash by the company that he would needed on the plane the following day.”
