Reports have it that an unidentified man is presently causing commotion and panic at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport MMIA where he has caused a plane to be struck on the run way as he showed up on the wings of the airport apparently in a bid to stow away on the plane.
An Instagram user with the username otto_orondaam posted a video showing the man on one of the wings of the plane saying there was no security personnel on ground.
The instagram user later posted an update to the story saying FAAN authorities showed up 23 minutes later but were scared to approach him until security men arrived the scene after about 37 minutes.
Further narrating what transpired, the Instagram user revealed thus:
How it happened!! So our flight was taxing on the runway and about taking off when this man shows up running towards the moving aircraft from the bush. The pilot and a few passengers spotted him running towards the aircraft and the pilot immediately slowed down and quickly put off the engine.
The guy approaches the plane with gloves and starts walking around and under the aircraft holding a bag which he dropped inside the engine.
Thanks to the Pilot of the Azman Airline for quickly observing and taking swift action.. I still have a million and one questions to ask cos anything could have gone wrong! Nigeria will work perfectly someday. This I know. 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬
See his post below and video showing the man on the wing of the aircraft:

For 30 minutes we have been stuck at the runway at MMIA by an unidentified man who ran to the aircraft with a bag.
