Nigeria Ore road helicopter ‘picked up stroke victim’
A man who was picked up by a helicopter in the middle of a huge traffic jam in Nigeria had suffered a stroke, the helicopter company has told the BBC.
The video from Sunday spread widely on social media, with many speculating it showed a billionaire who had called the helicopter to escape the four-hour long traffic jam.
The video provoked condemnation about the behaviour of Nigeria’s super rich.
But the helicopter operator says it is normal to respond to emergency calls.
