The Honorable Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, narrowly escaped a fatal incident on the evening of November 3 when a private jet operated by Flint Aero crash-landed at the Samuel Ladoke Akintola Airport in Ibadan, Oyo State. Departing from the Abuja airport, the aircraft encountered difficulties during landing, resulting in a crash into the nearby bush at approximately 10 p.m.
Fortunately, there were no fatalities as only the pilot and the Minister of Power were onboard. However, the aircraft suffered significant damage as it veered off the runway and collided with the surrounding vegetation.
Quickly responding to the incident, the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB) has initiated a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the accident. Our thoughts are with the Minister of Power and all those affected, and we eagerly await the findings of the investigation.
