The widow who her husband was among the officers who died with COAS on Kaduna plane crash, Late Flt Lt Alfred Olufade was found uncontrollably mourning the death of her husband when the wife of Vice President, Yemi Osinbanjo paid condolence visit to her on Sunday.
Late Flt Lt Alfred Olufade, got married about three months ago and was a pilot of the ill- fated aircraft which crashed at Kaduna international airport, claiming his life and 10 others including the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru.
George Olufade, the father of the deceased, has also expressed his sorrow over the sad incident, stating that only prayers could sustain him as George was his only son.
The grieving father said, “It is devastating. I just need prayers for strength. I pray that God should hold us because he was my only son. He was very intelligent, generous, extremely humble, and dedicated to his duty. He was a giver and a lover of Christ.
“He was in the seminary before he eventually got into the military school.
“He was the only Air force officer in my state. He was a special child. He graduated as the youngest in his set. When he wanted to join the military, I encouraged him from the beginning to the end because he had passion for flying. I encouraged him and prayed for him.
“They should take care of their planes. Most of their planes are outdated and not properly taken care of. They stress their pilots, too. He just returned from Maiduguri and he had to fly again. They need to take care of their planes before they lose all their brilliant talents. “
Olufade added, “Each time he was flying, he would tell me and I would pray for him. But this last one, he didn’t tell me.
“But God knows better. It has not been my prayer holding him, but God that has been holding him. God gave me Ayodeji and He had taken him; may his soul rest in peace. If it is from God, glory is to Him. If it is from man, God will judge. “
