26-year-old Peter Bello was a co-pilot of the helicopter that crashed in the Oworo/Oko Cole area of Third Mainland Bridge on Wednesday afternoon – August 14, 2015. Initial eye-witness reports stated the helicopter burst into flames before crashing into the water. Witnesses called for rescue support as soon as possible.

Out of the 12-seater helicopter, six passengers were rescued alive, while four were found dead that night, and the two pilots’ bodies were found on Thursday morning, according to Premium Times.

The Nigerian co-pilot and photographer, Peter, (his co-pilot was an American, Joseph Wyatt), most recently, took photos of Ebuka Obi-Uchendu & Cynthia‘s engagement dinner – and shared on his professional Instagram page. Heartfelt tributes for the popular young professional have been pouring in from his shocked friends and industry counterparts.

May the souls of all the departed Rest In Peace.

Still can’t believe this. This was just 24 hours ago. No way Peter! This isn’t happening.

Don’t even know what to say. Been crying. Been blurting out your name randomly. Been texting and calling your number. Been looking at your pictures. Why didn’t you give a sign?! Why didn’t you stay abit longer. This is too hard, Peter! Not you! Never thought of this! Your smile, laughter, persistence and push. I’m soooo sorry Peter! I love you! I can’t see the silver lining. I don’t know why this happened. I wish I was always there for you. Wish I responded your texts earlier, wish I picked up your FaceTime videocalls more. Wish I returned your calls immediately. Wish we played tennis more. This is so unfair Peter! You were the best! Almost without blemish. Great heart, almost like an angel. Heaven sent. I can’t stop crying. The pain is right there, hitting every nerve. Can’t work, can’t think, can’t function, all I see is your face. God, help. You were kind to many people too, everyone has the same story about you Peter. You were always bearing gifts; you’ve never been to my house without a gift. If you’ve been hear 50 times, then you’ll have been here with 50 gifts. I remember when we started cycling; you were so eager. I remember you saying I should come to Nevada with you on your last trip to Vegas, but work wouldn’t let me because I said there’ll always be more trips Peter! I remember when you were studying in London and how you’ll randomly send me pictures of things you were up to. So many awesome moments and times with you. I’m so sad, I don’t know why this terrible thing happened to a rare gem like you. I’ll tease you and you’ll humbly play along. I told you that I wanted a dog, that you should let me know if anyone was selling; next thing you showed up at my door with a puppy. You were always there, always ready to help and provide solutions. Smart kid! I miss you already and I loved you Peter, I love you Peter and I’ll always love you more Peter.

I’ve tried putting off posting this because it’ll mean that I’ve accepted that you’re gone and since we met I never for once imagined a world without you in it I keep wishing that we could go back to that last conversation at 1.30 and I could convince you to stay put I keep wishing that I didn’t put off seeing you on Tuesday and postponing till Wednesday I keep wishing that I had gone to carnival when you asked me to I keep wishing I had picked up the phone when you wanted to come visit on Monday I remember you making me promise you that I was going to get fit during my year in London I remember you checking on me after every audition, good and bad I remember asking you to take photos of my house from “space” on Monday I remember your migraine skank dance and how you made fun of me for being such a Yankee boy for not getting it I remember how much crap I gave you because you were going to miss my send-off because of your sister’s wedding and how you promised to make it up to me by coming back early for my dinner And how much crap I gave you at #wade2015 for changing outfits while we were shooting I remember how I kept saying that when I got my helicopter and helipad you were going to manage it for me and how you were going to be my flight instructor And I remember that sinking feeling when your phone wouldn’t go through no matter how many times I called over and over again My dear Peter we didn’t deserve you and you didn’t deserve this, can’t imagine how one person could make so many people feel so special and ask for nothing in return… My dear Peter, you’ve earned your wings and you get to fly forever now and knowing you, you’ll get some amazing pictures while you’re up there… I keep calling your phone and hoping against hope that you’ll pick up and we’ll have a laugh about all this… The small comfort I get from calling your US number and hearing your voice on your voicemail… Can’t wait to see you again brother, we’ll have so much catching up to do… They say God has a plan but this one I don’t understand, this one I can’t accept…. I pray that you had the chance to make your peace with Him… Rest well brother, you’re okay now…

I’m still in shock. Is it really possible that he no more? Someone please pinch me and wake me up from the bad dream!!! Peter. A dear friend… I don’t even know where to start. This guy knew how to push me. He ordered more cakes than any friend of mine and everyone had to be something I had never done before. A lot of the new things you see on my Instagram is thanks to him. From the Oreo Mayhem down to the that white chocolate dripped chocolate cake with chocolate dipped strawberries and all… He was particular and very difficult to please… I loved that! I’m even more dazed because I’m meant to be having dinner with this same guy right now to make up for a text error on his last birthday cake. He came by the store on Tuesday but I was too busy to sit with him (now I wish I had made the time) I am going to miss you dearly! And I am going to remember you forever. In fact, I am going finish up the work of art (cake) we were in the middle of creating and call it the Bello. As much as that doesn’t bring you back, it’s the one way I thank you for all the support, the kind words and the advise. Now I’m remembering how you pushed me to move my business out of 1004 and when it finally happened, the smile on your face was Epic! I’m still praying for some sort of miracle to bring you back but I do know one thing, God knows best. Dear Lord, please tell Peter I Love him and miss him already! #gonetoosoon

Its been a difficult 24hours for a lot of us. It has really got me thinking and its times like these that shapen my perspective regarding commitment, dedication and pride for my job. I have self questioned my reasons for choosing this path and the common response will be for the money, attention, respect. But for me; i’ll say its for the LOVE. It’s love that gets me to work. It’s the love of flight that has turned friends to family. Yesterday a brother was lost to LOVE. @pjkruel i’ll never understand why but we trust God to continue to LOVE you just as u loved the world enough to share your dreams. You will be missed and your dreams live with the #helicopterfamily. May Your Soul Rest in Eternal Peace. Amen. #fortheloveofflight #helicopterpilots #PjKruel #peterbelloforever #peterbello A photo posted by Mr. Black (@captkblack) on

Every time I manage to fall asleep. I wake up hoping someone has commented asking me to take down my previous post because your well. Everyone I’ve spoken to today have told me how it will get better with time. The pain will pass. It hasn’t! With every passing minute, I am confronted with the sad reality I cannot accept! I remember when I took picture of you in May. You were in London and dropped by to see your dads opticians. I came down to meet you at the station. You and your suitcases. We suffered that day?You were so warm and nice to everyone there and I can never forget the smile on your face when you said you were a pilot. It was this very happy content smile that I don’t have when I say I’m a tax adviser. I kept trying to convince you to bring out your camera and take a portrait of me. As per big time photog. You were like no it’s deep in the suitcase bla bla. When you finally brought the camera out, you went from not wanting to take pictures to clicking away and saying look here look there in few seconds. We turned the opticians store into a studio! And I kept saying i wanted the almighty ‘Peter Bello’ watermark on the images. I never saw those photos Peter. I didn’t ask because I thought there’s always gonna be time. Once we spoke and you mentioned how you wanted to adopt even when you had your kids in future. I couldn’t believe anyone could be that thoughtful. But that was you Peter. Always thinking of everyone else! I have not been able to have a meal since @thatdudedemi broke the news to me on Wednesday night. You should have heard him growling Peter. He kept shouting we need to pray. Peter we hoped against hope that you will come home. I tried to convince @peterozzy1 earlier today that there had been a mixup maybe there were 13 people and you’re still somewhere. Who will laugh at my head or say my nose will inhale them on Skype If I feel this much pain, I don’t want to imagine what your folks must be feeling. We have to keep your memory alive! You were so different and I will miss you forever #PeterBello #PeterLives #PB A photo posted by Fiyin_Faajs (@fiyin_faajs) on

 

Peter! I would never be able to write your name and those three words in one sentence. I woke up thinking I was strong, went in to work and couldn’t stop the tears till my manager asked me to leave! My PB! Baddest photographer of life! I remember the night we started the IG photography page. You kept saying you wouldn’t have time. Mr pilot! I created the page and then you’d send me photos to post. I remember how excited you were when you started getting a hang of the page and hashtags and started posting yourself. When I started the GI website you went through the drafts with me. Even offered to help me pay for part of it, in exchange for a part of the business lol. We were still together in London few months ago and never in my life did I think this would happen. Peter why didn’t you call in sick. Why weren’t you on holiday yesterday. Why did it go down! I wish I picked your FaceTime and replied your messages the other day. But I thought there was time. Why Peter! You loved the skies so much. We never got to do that GI x PB collabo. You never sent my pictures. What happens now. Peter what. Why! I kept hoping you were just on an island with no phone waiting to be phone. My man Kayode, it is well! ? #PeterBello #PeterBelloForever #PBForever

I am completely undone. I didn't even think I would be able to do this because I have not in anyway come to terms with reality but I have to try. Peter Kayode Bello, you were pretty much the 1st real friend I made when I moved back to Lagos. From then on, we spent almost everyday together, I would pick you up to take you work on my way to Law School and pick you up and bring you back home. We went to the cinema so much together they'd ask me about you if you weren't with me. Weekends I would follow you to shoots and gigs, or stay in on your couch bed and play with Nikki, Iserena and Johnson. We were polar opposites, me the introvert who wanted to stay in and read and you, who wanted to go out there and actually see and do everything. Truthfully, everyone thought I was in love with you, and in my own way I was but mostly I was utterly mesmerised by you. I have never met anybody with so much zeal for life, who was always determined to live for today. I just wanted to be a part of that. It was through you I was able to meet great people like @chef_fregz @utomisphere @orangecultureng @noble_igwe @okija to just name a few. You got on my every last nerve (you know you can annoy) but you always found a way to make me smile again. When things got rough for me, you were always there for me to turn to. I regret not coming to Calabar with you all the times you invited me, I regret pushing you away this year. I regret not baking you the cake i had promised you. I regret so much. But I know you held no grudges against me. After all we thought we had forever. You were the 1st person I made cake for and the 1st person that convinced me they were good enough to sell. I can't even begin to state how proud of you I am. You were living the dream you worked so hard for. You are awesome. I can't say goodbye, that wasn't our way. Hope we get to see another movie together someday, my love and my dear friend.

    Death is the inevitable journey we’ll all have to face but we pray never to die until we’re old & grey!!

    This is sooo sad…Praying the families are consoled almost sounds cliched but God has an amazing way of helping us cope better with our loved ones passing so I pray & know the pain will ease away as the years go by. May the souls of the faithful departed rest in perfect peace..Amen

    My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
    Hearing last night that my cousin was among the dead brought the pain home. Leaving his wife and five kids as a widow and fatherless is indeed numbing.
    Life indeed is a vanishing vapour.

I don’t know this young man but my heart is so heavy,I cannot imagine what his friends are going through ,his family……….sigh!!!!!!!!The good truly die young, maybe truly they die young because they deserve something better than this rotten world maybe…. May God almighty comfort all the friends and families of all the other victims…such a shame…such a shame… God knows best!!!!

    Everybody becomes “nice n wonderful” when they die. it seems we appreciate friends more when they are permanently no longer with us. Who is that friend , sister, brother, aunty, uncle, etc that mean so much to you? Who have u been putting off cos he/she hurt u? Pick up the phone and keep n in touch, let’s appreciate people when they are still with us when they can read or hear how much we love them. Call that somebody n tell them how much they mean to you.

    Stop with the bloody rejecting. Rejecting doesn’t mean it won’t happen. I never knew him but the pain of being gone and having so many loved ones behind. I really wish his family strength. If he was an employee, hopefully his benefits kick in soon. Inasmuch as we don’t want to think about death, it’s never too early to plan for when that times comes. Life insurance cannot be overstated. Rather than add to the grief of your absence with funeral costs or end-of-life expenses, let’s try to plan ahead.

    I don’t know him, never met him but I feel really sad whenever I see his photos and messages posted by his friends. That death was so swift. I prayed silently he was among the ones in the hospital until his body was found. He seemed so lively and loved but most pple….this life……*sigh* my heart goes out to his family, friends , and loved ones… Rest in peace Peter Bello..

    So sad, but i will never understand grieving via social media, especially in the hours or recent days after it happened. What I understand though is needing an outlet, but social media, cripes. No. This our exhibitionist society had extended to grief too? Sharing recent text messages, gosh that’s just creepy. Not that I am telling anyone how to grieve, or saying those who don’t go to social media are better grievers than the rest, but there’s something very strange to me about this, especially as grief is one of the most personal experiences of life. Trust our people to turn it into competition. The best wax lyrics, the deepest statement. You mean you couldn’t call the friends you had in common or even a friend who never met him, and just rant and cry and scream and all what not. Tagging him too, super creepy. I will forever respect Uche Pedro. Many people, celebs and non celebs alike need to learn from that woman and how she handles herself. She even had twins and till date we don’t know the sex or their names, or pictures, nada. That’s maturity and class right there. My opinion. My sincere condolences to his family during this horrible time. May The Lord be with them and heal their pain

      please zoey…people are mourning,,,this is no time to castigate the avenues they choose to do it. Whether you like it or not, social media has come to stay..its become a part of our generation. It is not always a bad thing…beautiful stories have been created via social media and im not ignoring the bad ones. You have to take the good with the bad. social media has created lasting love stories, thriving businesses, helped people recover lost loved ones. people who dont have alot of people in their lives to share stories with do it via this medium.

      I implore you, please cease. This guy (peter) had a instagram account and connected to alot of people through it, . Allow the friends who communicated with him via this medium, mourn him how they choose.

      People, just stop with all the judgement and show love instead, Is it really that hard to ignore the impulse to castigate people’s choices?

      Mourn with those that mourn.

      Ah….i cried so much yesterday just seeing a young talented vibrant young man’s life blown away. I was working late at home and took a break to read blog news and I kept seeing this young man ….I cried even more when I read the beautiful words his friends wrote about him.
      I kept saying this face is too familiar…….hmmm his mother’s face is all I see through him. Hmmm…May God almighty console your family.

    I did not know you, but the tears pouring down my face right now have been bottled up since I heard of the crash.

    Standing at the lobby of an office yesterday, I looked up to the skies from the window of the 6th floor, listening to my colleagues discuss the crash again.

    The skies have always been beautiful to me. Its like a high: You always want to get back up again. You should see my huge smile every time a plane flies past; how I stick my head out in traffic to get a better view or, bless me, when I’m in one.

    I stopped their conversation mid-sentence and said “In my next life, I’m going to be a pilot. My boss said “That’s not the first time I’ve heard you say that.” But I know you would understand, like @captainblack said, its Love that makes you do this over every other reason we may have. Despite the risks; despite the tragedies.

    To those who have gone and to the ones who keep us “elevated”, aiev yuikpateiv (always dominate the heights).

    Now you’ve got angel wings. So long and farewell.

    This Is not just a period to cry over d dead dt can never return, it is also a time to reflect on the way we live our lives and our relationships wit God, peter has gone to give acct of his life to d real owner and giver of life and so has every other dead persons. Wen our turns finally comes, what accounts re we going to give? Accept JESUS CHRIST today and live a life dt will guarantee u eternal bliss. Don’t forget, death is inevitable, so also is heaven and hell very Real. Shalom!

    Rip to the departed,the world is crazy,here I was wishing I could get a job at bristow, been very pained after completing the rigorous and expensive training to be a pilot. The person who got the job is no longer with us.God sure has his reasons,and everything would happen in his time. Peter may friendly lights guide you home,and a favourable wind at your back.See you in the sky

      You do know that when it’s your time to go, you would whether you are in the cockpit or not? And it wouldn’t matter what job you are working on at that moment? Someone just went to sleep last night and did not wake up….. God has no reasons, your time just isn’t up yet. Anyway I bet you can apply for the job now.

    Revelations 21: 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

    This is the hope unto which I hold, that his word is true and one day all this will end. I pray we all make it. Rest in peace dear one

    Hmnnn, you see, people die all over the world . But when deaths like these occur, then suddenly everyone is reminded about how life is short and how moments with loved ones are Precious and and all…………BUT then give us a week and we are all back to our normal hustle and grinding chasing temporary material things and acting like we will live “forever”.
    Its really easy to get carried away with the wahala of this earth but lets all just remember that we are all just passing by and this is a temporary stop.
    Everyone wishes to live till they are grey and old and “accomplished and fulfilled” but lets be honest, for a lot, we do not know when our time on earth will come to an end; for some it might be tommorow for others in five years and for others in 42hrs …we just never know!! and the best we can do is LIVE EVERYDAY FULLY LIKE ITS OUR LAST and do the things that truly make us happy and serve others. “A MAN WHO LIVES FULLY IS PREPARED TO DIE AT ANYTIME”.
    RIP TO THIS beautiful man! May God deeply console his friends and family.

    Never met you Peter, only met your mum through your aunt who’s been like a mother to me for years. Hmmmm, Peter Kayode Bello! You share ALL your names with my brothers, even the surname! That was something I and your aunt used to talk and laugh about! She’s shattered, I’m finding it difficult to understand why things like this happen. All I can say is GOD knows best. He took his angel because He loves you most. The testimonies about you make the tears uncontrollable. Rest on man! May God console your family and heal this pain! *Tears*

    PETER, YOU LIVED THROUGH THE LENS OF HUMANITY FIRST.

    Wow… This brought me back home to the importance of living a purpose driven life.

    I decided to read the tribute when I saw a profile photo of Peter with a camera around his neck.

    Even though I do not know Peter personally, it seems to me that he lived his life DOING WHAT HE DOES BEST.

    It seems to me that he lived a HUMBLE LIFE.

    It seems to me that Peter lived a SELFLESS LIFE.

    I believe that Peter lived his life through the lens of HUMANITY first.

    Being a photographer myself, I believe that Peter was passionate about his creativity every time he pressed the shutter.

    If there’s anything I’ve learnt from your tribute to Peter; it is to wake up daily knowing that we all have a purpose to fulfil and that we must put passion first before material gains.

    Peter K. Bello ll, may you rest in peace as we take a leaf from the tree of life that you lived.

    My heart goes out to the family.

    RIP Peter. I didn’t know him personally but I feel like I knew him from the heartfelt messages his friend have posted.
    The sadness I feel over someone I didn’t know reminds of Kunle Olaifa’s death last year August. There was such honest outpouring of grief from people who knew him too and nobody had a bad word to say about him just like Peter.
    I pray for the families of those who lost their lives that the Holy spirit will comfort them.
    Peter’s family should take comfort ( however little) in the kind words his friends have used to describe him.

    my condolence to the Bello’s…
    @26 he had impacted so many lives as if he had lived for 96 yrs.. that was a good life, that was absolutely a beautiful and great life becos it is immaterial whether one live long or short, what’s important is what you wld be remembered for after you depart this world.

    R.I.P bro
