There was confusion at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, Friday morning when passengers of an airplane preparing to take off, sighted a yet-to-be identified man on top of their plane.
A video obtained by Newspeakonline showed the apprehensive passengers scrambling to get off the plane while many others were wondering what he was up to.
Some of the passengers were particularly worried as they alleged that the man climbed the plane with a bag whose content was unknown. As the video showed, the man came off the plane without the bag.
The aircraft was at the holding bay expecting clearance for take-off when the incident occurred.
Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), confirmed the development, saying the man was a stowaway and that he had been arrested by the Aviation Security Personnel.
A reliable source, however, said that the suspect was planning to steal his way to Ghana. It is not yet clear how he sneaked nto the restricted area unnoticed.
