10 escape death as private jet overshoots runway at Ibadan airportNo fewer than 10 persons, on Friday, escaped death as a private jet from Abuja the overshot the runway while landing at Ibadan Airport.

BRANDPOWER reports the private jet, with 10 persons onboard, skidded off the runway around 11.00 a.m. at the airport.

BRANDPOWER gathered that the jet, with Registration Number: N580KR, missed the runway and skidded into the nearby bush.

A Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed the incident.

The official said that the private jet landed safely but skidded off the runway while landing at the airport.

The official said that firefighters and rescue officials from FAAN were immediately deployed to the scene of the incident, adding that everything had been brought under control.

“No casualty was recorded from the incident,” the official said.

The rate of aviation incidents in the past few months has been of grave concern despite the sacking and replacement of heads of aviation agencies. In November 2023, the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, escaped death when a plane he was on board crash-landed at the same airport.
