Families of DANA Air Crash Victims Protest Over Non-Payment of Claims

Few weeks after DANA Airline resumed flight operations after the June 3rd 2012 crash that claimed the lives of over 150 people, aggrieved families affected by the crash converged at the Ikeja office of the Dana Airline to protest non-payment of their claims.

The protesters told SaharaReporters that theyare determined to continue seizing the office of Dana Airline until it responds appropriately to the damages caused by the crash.

One of the protesters, a warehouse owner whose warehouse was destroyed by the crash said he had submitted relevant documents to request a claim of N500million to the management of Dana Airline, but that after series communications, Dana Airline has not replied to a single correspondence.

DANA Airline resumed normal flight operations on January 4th this year after it got back its operating license which was temporarily suspended.

    It will NOT be well with the families of the Management of Dana. As simple as that! You will lick the dust like a serpent and toil day and night in vain. Your death excruciatingly painful and worse off than the victims affected.

    No amount of pain can be conveyed into adequate words for these people. The least you can do is pay your respects, suffer financial loss and pay the families of the victims what you promised them.
    Awon oni iranu. Your doom awaits you!

    Nobody should blame DANA air rather blame the Nigeria government who failed to hold the airline accountable. I’m pretty sure the owners of this sorry airline has given bribe to somebody in government thats why they allowed them to resume flying without paying compensation to the families of those that lost their lives. When i say Nigeria is a failed state, people think i’m bad mouthing the country. People should go to Youtube and watch the latest interview Christina Amanpour did with Badluck Jonathan, you will be ashamed he couldn’t articulate himself like a president of a country. What a shame, i LMAO he was talking like a sheet man, yet people say he has a Phd whaoooo from what University?

    And what is the president doing about it. It’s one thing to have a death machine currently operating as an airline, but its another thing to have a useless president and brainless aviation minister stabyand watch it all happen. Let us pray for our b.s. leaders. They have no hearts or conscience
