    (Reuters) - A helicopter crashed in Nigeria's southern oil-producing Bayelsa state on Saturday, killing the governor of Kaduna state, an aide to the politician told Reuters.

    Bayelsa police spokesman Fidelis Odunna confirmed a helicopter had crashed in Ogbia Creek but gave no details of who was on board or any casualties.
