A private jet, carrying 10 individuals, including Very Important Personalities (VIPs), crash-landed in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.
Reports indicate that the jet crash-landed at the Samuel Ladoke Akintola Airport around 11 am on Friday. The aircraft, registered as N580KR, veered off the runway, ending up in the nearby bush.
However, firefighters and rescue officials from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) were immediately deployed to the scene.
There was no death or casualty recorded.
“It was a private plane from Abuja. It landed safely but overshot the runway. There was no casualty,” a spokesperson for the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Carol Adekotujo, told our correspondent over the phone.
The spokesman for the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau, Tunji Oketunmbi, said he would revert but he was yet to do so as of press time.
Recall that, in November, the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, escaped death when a plane he was on board crash-landed at the same airport.
