Nigerian billionaire and CEO MRS Holdings Ltd, Sayyu Dantata, was recently spotted flying his chopper from Victoria Island in Lagos to Apapa. He did this to beat the normal gridlock on the road.
According to a clip of the incident that was recorded by one of Dantata’s staff and has since gone viral on the internet, he flew the helicopter all by himself and landed on top of his office building. Many of Dantata’s employees could be heard hailing him as he expertly landed and stepped out. The chopper is reportedly worth about N722 million.
People’s Reactions: Some Nigerians who are yet to recover from the Benin-Lagos Expressway helicopter stunt, were quick to relate both incidents. Some even pointed out that this might be the season of helicopters, even as wealthy Nigerians continue to showcase their opulence.

Some people even joked that Lagos may soon start experiencing air gridlocks if these billionaires continue flying their helicopters around.
From the look of things Lagos road hold up will now switch to airspace hold up.
