One of the crew members of the Beachcraft 350 aircraft that crashed at the Kaduna International Airport on Friday, Sgt Adesina Opeyemi Deeziah, died less than a month after sharing a post forecasting bloody May in Nigeria.
Adesina and the newly appointed Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, as well as nine other military personnel were onboard the jet when it crashed around 6pm on Friday. The 11 souls died in the disastrous incident.
Newsclickng.com gathered that the late sergeant had on April 30 shared a story “Something bad is going to happen in Nigeria in May” on his Facebook page and asked for prayers for the nation.
He wrote: “This parable is heavy. Me and you need to pray for our country Nigeria.”
The attached link is a news report quoting the General Overseer of the Champions Royal Assembly, Joshua Iginla, warning about heavy clouds on the country in May, June and July.
“Mark all I have said in parables. My spirit boils. For the past six months, God has been revealing to me some things that are hard for me to say. We need to pray for Nigeria.
“What is coming ahead in the next three months is not good, that’s May, June, and July. I can’t talk more than this. We need to pray for Nigeria,” the cleric had said.
Sadly, Adesina died alongside others about three weeks after his daughter’s dedication.
He and his wife of three years, Adesina Gift Funke, dedicated their five-month-old daughter to God in their family church on May 2.
Shortly after the child dedication, Adesina’s wife had shared photos from the event on her Facebook wall with the caption, “My dashing baby dedication was a success, may ur days be long my beautiful baby.”
She tagged her husband in the post that attracted over 50 congratulatory messages.
Adesina himself had announced the birth of his daughter in a December 26, 2020 post.
He wrote, “*GoodNews*. It is a girl. My Queen has finally arrived. Mom, Dad and baby are in good condition.”
Ever since of the plane crash broke, friends and colleagues of Adesina have since taken to his Facebook wall to bemoan his demise.
