A private jet with 10 persons onboard has crash-landed in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The jet with registration N580KR, Friday, overshot the runway at the Ladoke Akintola Airport.
Punch has it that firefighters and rescue officials from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria were immediately deployed to the scene.
A similar incident occurred in November 2023, when the Minister of Power, Bayo Adelabu, and nine of his aides narrowly escaped death.
When contacted, the Director of Accident Investigation Bureau and Consumer Protection, Wunmi Oladeji, confirmed the incident to our correspondent but declined further comment.
“A team of investigators are already here in Ibadan. I may not be able to give you details until after their findings. So far I have your contact, I will get back to you,” she said.
Though there was no record of death as all the passengers on board were timely rescued, unconfirmed reports said the passengers were in town to attend a party.
The source, who did not want his name in print, said, “The passengers are all very important personalities, and they took off from the Abuja airport. And with what I learnt, they were going for a party either here in Ibadan or neighbouring towns or states.”
