Also dismissing the plane crash, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Lagos Territorial Head of National Emergency Management Agency told Daily Trust that he had reached out to control towers and other relevant sections in the aviation industry but they all said the incident didn’t happen.

He added, “The Control Tower could not confirm and no plane is missing on the TRACON. It is pertinent to clear the rumour going around on the purported plane crash landing around Ikeja with obscuring footage in a crowded traffic scene.

“After due consultations with all critical stakeholders and tracking of all incoming and outgoing flights in Lagos, there is no plane missing so far.”

Conclusion

Daily Trust can confirm that the video in circulation has no evidence of a fresh plane crash in Ikeja as claimed. Also, NEMA, an agency in charge of emergency response, has dispelled the claim.
