What was he thinking??? Why would he even put himself in that kind of dangerous situation. What was he desperately running from and running to ????
The story;A teenage boy left many speechless as he breached Airport security in Benin and stowed away allegedly in the tyre hold of an Arik Aircraft from Benin to Lagos.
The Aircraft with registration number, 5N-MJG Flight 44, left Benin Airport at 9am for Lagos and when it landed 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,”
The airline’s spokesperson, Banji Ola said:
“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.”Was the control tower at fault for not acting immediately or seeing the situation as unimportant? or Were the security officials too lazy to reach there early enough to catch the boy before he boarded the TYRE compartment???
“The pilot of Arik Air flight W3 544, departing Benin Airport for Lagos at 9.00am today 24th 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."
I would love to interview this young boy and ask him why he took such a risk and for him to thank God he didnot die. Or something worse happening to him while he was on the plane tyre.
