Man who mounted moving Owerri-bound Air Peace flight, thinking it was heading overseas arrested.

A man in his twenties who attempted stow away into the wheel well of an Air Peace Owerri bound aircraft has been arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

According to the airline’s spokesman Stanley Olisa the young man emerged from the bush along the runway of the airport and tried to gain access into the wheel well of the aircraft as it was taxing for take-off.

Olisa said the pilot in command of the aircraft was alerted of the development by another pilot of a private jet who informed security personnel attached to the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN ) who whisked the man away.

When interrogated on why he took the action, the man stated that he thought the aircraft was headed overseas.
