Plane Propeller Kills 21-year-old Nigerian Student
A 21-year-old Nigerian Student, Sani Aliyu, schooling in the United States, has been killed by the propeller of a private plane he rented for a dinner date.
The deceased had lost his life on Sunday, October 16 when he walked into a spinning propeller of a small plane on the way back from a date.
The Georgia Southern University student was returning to the plane, which was piloted by his two friends, when he was hit twice on the head at Statesboro-Bulloch County Airport.
Aliyu and his date were heading to a nearby Savannah, which is around 55 miles of Statesboro from the main campus of the university, where he was studying.
Speaking on Aliyu’s passing, Bulloch County Coroner Jake Futch told Statesboro Herald: “They flew to Savannah to go on a date, flew back, landed at the Statesboro Airport, and the young lady got off the plane, and he got off the airplane and walked toward the front of the plane.
“And when he did, the propeller hit him.”
No one else was reportedly injured.
