An unconscious-looking man suspected to be a stowaway has been found on a parked aircraft belonging to United Nigeria Airlines.
A statement by the airline’s head of corporate communications, Achilleus-Chud Uchegbu, said the middle-aged man has since been arrested and taken for interrogation.
Uchegbu disclosed that an investigation into the security breach at Murtala Mohamed Airport 2 has commenced.
“The aircraft last operated at Abuja-Lagos at 7.30 pm on September 3, 2022, and was securely parked at the apron following a post-flight inspection, “the statement read.
“During a preflight inspection this morning, a stowaway was found in one of our aircraft parked at MMA2 Ikeja. The middle-aged man, who looked unkempt and is suspected to be unconscious, was arrested and taken in for interrogation.”
The development would result in the rescheduling of some flights to accommodate the investigations.
