Air peace aircraft attacked on runway by robbers



Airlines in Nigeria are affected by the poor state of the country, Sometime this week, the door of Dana airlines airplane flew open on-landing. The door was already shaky while on flight, report says. Well this time around, it is not the case of faulty fittings, but armed robbery case.

An Air Peace plane getting ready to departure at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos on Thursday night, was assaulted by criminals.

Air Peace correspondences director, Mr. Chris Iwarah who affirmed the occurrence which happened at around 7.35 pm on Runway 18 Right (A1) of the air terminal on Friday, said the constrained opening of the load of the air ship prompted delay in the takeoff of the flying machine, as security agents did an extensive inquiry on the plane before being permitted to withdraw the air terminal.

A twitter user, who was on-board the flight, @Sallyqueen17 shared her experience.

We are in Air Peace right now due to security issues. While we were waiting to take off, someone opened the cargo. We are not certain if the fellow dropped or picked something. Anti Bomb squad are on ground.
Well done to the captain @adesola82 , staff and crew of Air peace. Airline operators should be vigilant and work with NCAA to make our airports save for us. Though the delay affected our schedule but the wait was worth it because security is key
