Air Peace plane attacked by robbers on run way in

An Air Peace plane preparing to takeoff at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos on Thursday night, was attacked by robbers.

Air Peace communications manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah who confirmed the incident which occurred at about 7.35 pm on Runway 18 Right (A1) of the airport on Friday, said the forced opening of the cargo of the aircraft led to delay in the departure of the aircraft, as security operatives carried out a comprehensive search on the airplane before being allowed to depart the airport.

Twitter user @Sallyqueen17 who was on board the flight tweeted;

We are in Air Peace right now due to security issues. While we were waiting to take off, someone opened the cargo. We are not certain if the fellow dropped or picked something. Anti Bomb squad are on groud.

Well done to the captain @adesola82 , staff and crew of Air peace. Airline operators should be vigilant and work with NCAA to make our airports save for us. Though the delay affected our schedule but the wait was worth it because security is key

Here is Air Peace’s statement over the incident;
