Gloria Ugolee, sister of media personality, Emmanuel Ugolee, has taken to social media to mourn her friend, Chika Ernest, the pilot of the ill-fated helicopter that crashed into a wall separating two buildings in Opebi, Lagos state on Friday, August 28.

According to IgbereTV reports, three crew members were in the helicopter belonging to Quorom aviation, that flew into Lagos from Rivers state. While two of the crew members died at the scene, one of them who happens to be the pilot, Chika Ernest, was found alive and was rushed to the hospital.

Taking to her Instagram page to mourn him, Gloria said the pilot died as the hospital waited for a police report. She also revealed that late Chika emptied his fuel tank before crashing into the wall so as to avoid an explosion.

She wrote:
