Boeing 737 MAX 8: Mo Abudu mourns Ethiopian airlines’ crash victims


Media personality and filmmaker, Mo Abudu, has mourned the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines flight, that killed all 157 people on board.

The flight had taken off from Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopian heading to Nairobi in Kenya on Sunday when it reported technical problems and asked for permission to turn back. It crashed shortly afterwards.

The media mogul via her Instagram page said the aircraft was four months old adding that God knows what happened.

Mo Abudu further commiserated with the families of the victims of the ill-fated aircraft saying the management of Ethiopian Airlines don’t deserve this.

WuzupNaija reports that it’s is the second time in less than six months that one of the planes has crashed within minutes of takeoff, after a new Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 flight went down over the Java Sea last October, killing 189 people.

Similarities between the incidents have prompted caution among some aviation authorities and airlines.

Mo Abudu wrote:

“Ethiopian Airlines is one of the best run airlines in Africa. An Airline that we can all be proud of.

“The crashed aircraft was a brand new, 4 month old Boeing 737!!! 6 mins into take off, the pilot detected a fault. Only God knows what happened.

“My heart and soul goes out to the management of Ethiopian Airlines because they don’t deserve this!! They worked hard at being the best on the continent. They invested in the best people and equipment.

“Most importantly my heart goes out to the families and friends of all those that lost loved ones.

“We must never give up our struggle to make our continent great in all our sectors and endeavors,” she added.

Two Nigerians, Ambassador Abiodun Bashua and Prof. Pius Adesanmi died in the crash.
