Amazing things , speechless things ,incredible
things are bound to be happening in Nigeria ,
my country … lol .
The young boy named Daniel
Ikehina took an unimaginable courage
yesterday at the Benin airport to sneak into
the Tyre of of Arik Flight. The young Batman ,
Spider Man , which ever name you chose to
describe this very young Merlin beat airline
and airport security at the Benin airport and
flew unharmed with the aircraft from Benin
at thereabout 9am to Murtala Muhammed
Airport , concealed all through the distance in
the undercarriage . He was arrested by airport
security in MMA .
This young man needs to be interviewed on
CNN on his courage . Besides his courage , being able
to beat Arik ‘ s security and fly with the
aircraft is a massive flaw to Arik
management, Airline and Airport Security ,
considering the situation of Nigeria at the
Arik spokesman Banji Ola explains what
“The management of Arik Air has expressed
shock over the incident wondering how the
teenager beat the Aviation Security personnel
at the Benin Airport to get to the runway.
The pilot of Arik Air flight W 3 544 , departing
Benin Airport for Lagos at 9. 00am today 24 th
August, 2013 reported to the control tower the
presence of a strange boy in the bush about
200 – 300 meters at the end of runway 23.
The control tower told the Captain that they
were sending security men to the place to
arrest the boy .
As the captain was making his final turn,
preparatory for take-off , a cabin crew called his
attention to the information by some of the
passengers that they saw a boy running
towards the airplane.
The First Officer confirmed that they had
observed it earlier and alerted the control
tower which responded that they have sent the
patrol team to arrest the boy . The Captain
again reported to the control tower and was
informed that the situation was under control
and that he had been cleared for take-off .
On arrival at the domestic wing of MMA ,
Lagos , a teenage boy, who apparently had
sneaked into the aircraft main wheel well
jumped out and was arrested by Arik personnel
and handed over to FAAN security”
Meanwhile the Federal Airport Authority of
Nigeria ( FAAN ) blamed Arik Air for the
FAAN said in a statement:
“Arik Air acted with impunity by not stopping
the aircraft to check when the crew and
ground personnel ’ s attention was drawn to an
abnormality on the tarmac . This is arrant
display of impunity. The aircraft should not
have taxied further , but return to the apron
until a proper check is carried out on all parts
of the aircraft. FAAN will not tolerate such
impunity henceforth from Arik or any airline .
Any violation would be met with applicable
Classic I say….lol
