Earlier today, there was pandemonium and panic at the Lagos airport. A man climbed the aircraft with a bag containing unidentified items and tried to find his way into the aircraft.
This caused major panic among the passengers already on board with no means of exiting the plane. Many feared for their lives with the notion that the man probably had a bomb.
One of the passengers aboard the plane was Otto Orondaam, the CEO of Slum 2 School, who recently hosted international boxing heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua. Otto recounted, on Instagram, what happened at the airport and how the authorities seemed reluctant to intervene.
“Guys this is an emmergency o.
“For 30 minutes we have been stuck at the runway at MMIA by an unidentified man who ran to the aircraft with a bag.
“Security has not showed up and everyone is panicking.
“I have so many questions to ask but right now I can't even breathe.
“Pls share this to all relevant authorities.
“Dear Nigeria!!!!! Update: He has finally been apprehended and we've all disembarked from the flight. FAAN authorities showed up 23minutes into the scene but were scared to approach him. Security eventually shows up after 37mins.
“How it happened!! So our flight was taxing on the runway and about taking off when this man shows up running towards the moving aircraft from the bush. The pilot and a few passengers spotted him running towards the aircraft and the pilot immediately slowed down and quickly put off the engine.
“The guy approaches the plane with gloves and starts walking around and under the aircraft holding a bag which he dropped inside the engine.
“Thanks to the Pilot of the Azman Airline for quickly observing and taking swift action.. I still have a million and one questions to ask cos anything could have gone wrong! Nigeria will work perfectly someday. This I know. 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬”
