An Information Forum is being organized to assist the families and dependents, of victims, with their problems and concerns during the grieving process as well as disseminate information on their options and rights resulting from the tragedy. Specifically, specialist advice and guidance will be offered on a range of issues including:-

Contributing to the forum are NLI Senior Fellow Oba Nsugbe QC, SAN, Dr. Femi Olugbile (Psychiatrist), Captain Dayo Awobokun (qualified Pilot and Flight Safety Expert), and Jim Morris (qualified Boeing Pilot and Aviation Specialist) from the UK.
According to Yinka Oyinlola, the CEO of NLI, this information forum is “valuable for victims’ families to be aware of the resources and recourse during this period of sorrow. Moreover, we hope that, through this effort, there will be enhanced awareness that will make Nigerians demand more in terms of air safety.”
Mr. Jim Morris, stated that “I commend NLI for organizing this event. I bring the solidarity and sympathies of our firm, Irwin Mitchell, to the families and dependents of the victims. It is my hope that the forum will lead to a sustainable support for the families; our hearts go out to them. Even while awaiting the publication of the Interim and Final Accident Reports, the families may get a respite with information on some credible theories and opinions on what might have occurred on Flight 992.”
