Breaking: Abuja-Lagos Bound Dana Air Suffers Technical Fault; Fate Of Passangers Unknown

A Lagos bound Dana Aircraft billed to take off from Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport has suffered a technical problem after being certified Ok to fly.

The fate of the passengers are unknown as they were only asked to disembark from the faulty flight with no assurances of being airlifted to their destination.

The plane with Reg. No 9J 352 schedule to depart from Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at 0830hrs was said to have developed technical problems when the pilots were planning a take-off.

The pilot was said to have directed the cabin crew members to help disembark the passangers who have already boarded.

One of the passengers who pleaded anonymity wondered why the Government regulatory agencies could clear (to fly) an aircraft that could not taxi the runway.

“It’s just God again that saved us. It would have been a total disaster if the aircraft has taken off. Imagine a technical problem of this magnitude when we’re already airborne. That would have been a disaster. But what surprises me is that we have a Government agency that certifies aircraft to fly. It’s so bad, no body is taking lresponsibility again. The skies are not safe. The land is not safe. Where are we going from here as a nation”. She asked.

All efforts to reach the Corporate Communication Department of Dana as at the time of filing this report were unsuccessful.
