A Medview Airline flight from Lagos headed for Abuja was suspended midair putting the lives of over a 100 passengers at risk.
According to a passenger on the flight, passengers suspected the plane, with flight number VL 2102, was faulty before takeoff, but they were assured by the pilot and the crew that it was in good condition. A few minutes after take-off, however the plane had to return to the Lagos Airport due to the fault.
“They want to kill over 100 passengers with their faulty plane” a passenger, Oladejo Olowu, told Premium Times
The plane was scheduled to get to Abuja before a final journey to Yola, Adamawa State.
The Medview incident occurred at about 11 a.m. forcing the pilot to abort the flight.
The aircraft was to convey 105 passengers from Lagos to Abuja.
Adequate check before takeoff should never be taken for granted! Nothing should be regarded as unimportant. Thank God the disaster was however averted.
