How often do you get to see a helicopter? For me, the last time I came across one of these machines was quite recently at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos after a quick visit from Accra to see my family.

Two days after my trip, social media went haywire after a Nigerian man now believed to be a billionaire placed a call during a traffic gridlock on the Lagos-Benin expressway and in a short moment, there was a helicopter in the middle of the road to pick him up.

Yes, billionaire Julian Osula ordered for a helicopter after spending over two hours in traffic!!!
