FEDERAL AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF NIGERIA DEBUNK RECENT REPORTS OF PLAIN CRASH, SAYING IT ONLY HEADED FOR DELIVERY
Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has debunked reports making the rounds on social media that a plane crashed at Ikeja area of Lagos State on Tuesday night, May 24, 2022.
The aircraft, which had missing wings, caused a gridlock on the Ikeja-Agege road, thereby, causing panic and heavy traffic among commuters in the region.
However, in a statement posted on its social media handles, FAAN stated that the aircraft didn’t crash as widely reported, but was being transported to the location of its new owner.
“The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria would like to inform the general public to disregard the news making the rounds on social media about an alleged crash at Ikeja Airport.
“The aircraft was sold by the owner to a buyer, who was taking it to its final destination,” the statement reads.
