A private helicopter belonging to Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church (RCCG) has reportedly been grounded at the Lagos airport by the Nigerian government through the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

According to investigations by The Sunday Punch, the aircraft, AgustaWestland AW139 chopper, with registration number 5N-EAA, was suspended from flying over two weeks ago.

Pastor Adeboye recently called for drastic action against corrupt practices in all facets of Nigeria.

The NCAA reportedly imposed the suspension on the chopper over the alleged expiration of some of its papers and spare parts.

The publication stated that the agency intends to conduct vital safety checks on the aircraft’s components, especially some spare parts that are due for replacement.
