A helicopter that conveyed Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday from the Nigeria Customs Command and Staff College, Gwagwalada, Abuja, was forced to land few seconds after take-off.
Osinbajo was in the college for the graduation ceremony of Senior Division Course 1/2018 participants.
The helicopter had earlier taken the Vice President to the college for the ceremony.
Upon take off, the white chopper with yellow and blue stripes, could not ascend beyond the trees level before it emitted thick smoke and landed on the same spot few seconds after take-off.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadique Abubakar, had already departed from the venue with their respective convoys.
