Sani Aliyu, a Nigerian student residing in Georgia, United States of America, has lost his life after being struck twice in the head by the propeller blades of a small plane while on a date.

According to Daily Mail UK, Aliyu, 21, a second-year student at Georgia Southern University, had rented the plane to take an unnamed lady on a dinner date.

After being flown by a pilot and co-pilot on a 58-mile journey from Statesboro to Savannah, within the state of Georgia, the incident happened while the Nigerian and his date were exiting the plane.

Until his death, Aliyu was a management major at Georgia Southern University.
