Moreover another presidency official told there was no indication of sabotage or anything extraordinary. Reportedly the propeller of the helicopter broke off close to a field in the town, causing the chopper to crash land. Accordingly Nigeria will hold general elections on February 16 to elect the President and national assembly members, and on March 2, to elect state governors and state houses of assembly members.
