Somber news to start with,THISDAY witnessed yet another sad event when an early morning fire on Saturday razed the fourth floor of it's corporate offices in Lagos. Coincidentally on this floor(The Penthouse)is where the offices of the chairman Mr Nduka Obaigbena are located.Bearing in mind that just a couple of weeks ago,the newspaper’s Editorial Board chairman Mr Godwin Agbroko was murdered on his way from work.The cause of the fire is still said to be unknown.
This is such sad news,as this is one publication that strives to paint the nation in a better light to others.Hopefully,things will work out great for them.
Another air disaster could have been witnessed on Saturday,if the pilot of a light plane(Beechcraft)which belongs to the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture(IITA)Ibadan,hadnt aborted take-off after a bird was said to have hit one of the engines of the aircraft at the Ibadan airport.No lives were lost,neither was anyone injured.The Ibadan airport has been shut following the incident.
