Major tragedy was averted when a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) maritime patrol aircraft, Cessna Citation CJ3, reportedly on a routine flight on Monday, carried out a controlled belly land at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, South-West Nigeria.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Wap Maigida, in a statement in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), explained that the aircraft had lost its tyres on touch and go flight in Ilorin, Kwara State, North-Central Nigeria.

According to Maigida, that there were no fatalities or injuries to any crew member and persons on the ground.

He said that the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, had directed the immediate constitution of a Board of Inquiry to determine the cause(s) of the accident.

“NAF continues to solicit the understanding and support of the general public as it daily strives to ensure the security of Nigeria and Nigerians,” the Air Force spokesperson said.
