Producer of the award winning movie ‘Mirror Boy’, Obi Emelonye, has dedicated the premiere of his aviation inspired film “last flight to Abuja” to the victims of the June 3rd Dana Air crash.
The premiere which is set to take place on June 8, 2012 in London at the Troxy Cinema will start at 9pm.
According to a statement signed by the movie organizers ‘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 said ‘ 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.
