A helicopter, carrying Ghana’s president and his wife, made a precautionary landing in an open field of Apatrampa in Kumasi, Ghana on the night of July 10.

President John Dramani Mahama, and his wife, Lordina Mahama, were travelling to Accra from Sunyani, when “a sudden storm with high winds closed in”, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

The helicopter landed safely.

Everyone aboard, including the President and his wife, remained unharmed.
