#LOCAL NEWS:Am back home after the plane crash

Share This

President Olusegun Obasanjo is back at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

His spokesman, Kehinde Akinyemi, told DAILY POST that the former leader was hale and hearty.

“He is very fine and in good shape, there was no crash”, he said on phone.

In a video shared on Instagram by ace comedian, Ali Baba, Obasanjo is seen playing local ‘Ayo’ game with a friend.

Obasanjo, who is one of former presidents that did not attend the second term inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari, escaped what could have ended as a plane crash in Lagos on Wednesday.

The ex-president was among the 393 passengers who were on board an aircraft that found it difficult to land at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

The passenger aircraft, ET-901, had departed the Bole International Airport, Addis Ababa, at 9:10am, Ethiopian time, 7 am Nigerian time.

A NAN correspondent, who was among the passengers, said the almost 5-hour flight from the Ethiopian capital to Lagos had been smooth until the pilot attempted to land at the Murtala Muhammed International airport.

Rather than landing on the first touch line of the runway, the pilot over short it, due to rain and heavy wind, landing on the third touchline.

On realising this, the pilot quickly manouvered the plane back air, flying out of the Lagos airport.

After hovering around between Lagos and areas suspected to be in Ogun, causing panic in passengers and crew members, the plane landed in Lagos airport, some 20 minutes after the initial false landing.
