AviationHeadlines FAAN debunks reports of Lagos plane crash, —says aircraft was sold by owner By maritimemag May 26, 2022 ShareTweet 0 The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) on Wednesday has debunked the news circulating on the internet that a plane had crashed in the Ikeja area of Lagos State. In a short statement posted on its verified Facebook page, the airport authority said that the plane was sold by the owner and was being transported by the new buyer. “The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria would like to inform the general public to disregard the news making the rounds on social media about an alleged crash at Ikeja Airport. The aircraft was sold by the owner to a buyer, who was taking it to its final destination.” This clarification came after a wingless plane was seen being transported on a flatbed trailer on the road, causing gridlock and panic among road users. © 2022, maritimemag.
