He was simply too gorgeous to die. Plus there’s a certain unfairness in death so young.
At first, the statuses of the pilot and co-pilot of the Bristow Helicopter which crashed inside the lagoon at Oworonshoki, Lagos two days ago was Missing. But reports have it that they have now been found and sadly, they are dead.
The bodies of handsome 26-year-old co-pilot Peter Bello and the American pilot Joseph Wyatt were recovered at 11am yesterday, Thursday Aug 12. This brings to an end the search and rescue effort. Both bodies have now been taken to the Mainland General Hospital mortuary in addition to the other four for further investigation.
The death of Peter Bello has touched many because he was young, an avid user of social media who had a passion for photography. According to reports he was the only child of his parents and was scheduled to photograph a wedding in October.
In a weird twist, Peter appeared in an Instagram video with Soundcity exec Olamide Adedeji just hours before he took off to Delta State, in the selfie video the two joke around with Lamide asking him if he’s still single and he smiled as he jokingly flashed a ring, saying, “I’m married.”
May God grant rest to the souls of these departed and give solace their families and loved ones in this difficult time.
