Since the death of many and the co-pilot of the crashed Bristow Helicopters, families of the deceased have been calling for the release of the bodies of their loved ones especially Peter Bello, whose service of songs was held recently.

One person who is not comfortable with the turnout of things is actor, Uti Nwachukwu, who happens to be a close friend with the late Peter Bello.

The actor, who is called on the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to intervene in the matter so that the body of the late pilot could be released for burial.

He questioned why the government had to allow Bristow Helicopters to still operate in Nigeria after past bad records in the country without having an address.

According to him, “Mr. Lagos state coroner what are you using Peter Bellos body for oo?! Release it and it beta come complete! Organs & all! You have out attention! where are the Briscow people? If you all have to ambush that place and retrieve peter Bello's body so he can be buried please do it now!

“Why did government allow Bristow helicopters resume operations without an explanation of what happened with that crash? Nigeria we hail thee. Oga mi Akinwunmi Ambode , the Lagos state coroner has refused to release the body of Peter Bello and his funeral is slated for tomorrow.”

“How come there is no address for Bristow? How can we reach them? Aparently the coroners are waiting on them! Wait so you mean Bristow has no known office in Nigeria? Even their letters no letter head? What is going on? Aircrafts are covered by insurance but pilots not covered by insurance? Really Bristow? Please attend to the coroners now! Bristow how can you not speed up the process? What happened? Why did that helicopter crash? Attend to coroners!”

“Has the family not suffered enough? ehn? What do you really want? I can't stand our system at times like this! This is ludicrous,” he said.
