New Movie “Last Flight to Abuja” Dedicated To Victims Of The Dana Air Crash


Obi Emelonye, the producer of the award
winning movie ‘Mirror Boy’ has dedicated
the premiere of his aviation inspired film
“ Last flight to Abuja” to the victims of the
Dana Air crash
The premiere will take place on June 8, 2012
in London at the Troxy Cinema and will
commence by 9pm. Activities lined up for
the event include an interactive session
between some casts of the film like Omotola
Jalade-Ekehinde , Hakeem Kae-Kazim and Jim
Iyke and the audience.
A statement was made by the organizers as
regards the film and its coincidence with
the June 3rd plane crash.
‘It is quite unfortunate that the plane crash
occurred before the premiere of the movie.
The movie is dedicated to all who lost their
lives in the two ill fated crashes that
involved Allied Air and Dana Air in Accra and
Lagos.’
The organizers further disclosed their
feelings and the impact the crashes made
on them.
‘ The movie is to express our solidarity with
the feelings of everyone affected by both
tragic events, especially those who have
lost their loved ones. A minute silence will
be observed before the film screens and the
movie will be used as an advocacy tool to
highlight the issues of air safety in Nigeria
and Africa at large.’
‘Last flight to Abuja’ was inspired by the
series of plane crash tragedies that rocked
the Nigerian aviation sector in 2006.
