Stowaway: FAAN Suspends Four Heads Of Aviation Security

Intruder detained after jumping on wing of Nigeria plane prior to takeoff

As the plane was waiting for clearance from air traffic controllers to takeoff, the Pilot in Command spotted an unidentified man on the tarmac, who began climbing toward the wing of the aircraft.

The unusual incident involving an Azman aircraft happened on Friday morning in the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria, according to a statement from the airline company. The guy approaches the plane with gloves and starts walking around and under the aircraft holding a bag which he dropped inside the engine.

After radioing the tower to inform them of the man, the pilots shut the plane's engine down while officials rushed to the scene.

"In the interim, a General Manager of the Authority, Dr. Anne Enyinnaya-Egbadon, has been detailed to take charge of security at the airport".

Yadudu said the federal government, through the ministry of transport and honourable minister of state, aviation has already assisted in the award of contracts for perimeter fences at the airports, including detection devices and CCTV cameras with infrared capacity for night operations.

Also, the spokesperson for the Lagos Airport Police Command, DSP Joseph Alabi, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

A man climbed onto the wing of an airplane preparing to take off from Nigeria's largest city Friday, sparking panic among passengers inside the aircraft, authorities said.

After the incident, passengers and crew disembarked for another round of security checks. The aircraft eventually departed for Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

It was not clear how the man, who has not been identified, reached the Azman Air plane or what his intention was.

She said an investigation to ascertain the remote and immediate causes of the incident had commenced.
