it was disclosed that he was repeatedly warned not to fly on that fateful day due to weather conditions. However, he ignored the warnings and took control of the Cessna jet when the hired co pilot refused to fly.
According to the country's aviation policy, small jets like the Cessna plane Governor Suntai piloted on the day in question was only allowed to fly based on visuals from morning to 6.00 p.m. daily.
And once the sun sets, it is always difficult to fly smaller aircraft like the governor's plane.
The governor, who has since been flown to Germany for adequate treatment in view of the injury he sustained in the crash, obtained a private pilot licence from the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology, Zaria, which allows him to fly himself.
