Reacting to the incident, Tunji Oketunbi, NSIB spokesperson, disclosed that the aircraft was on a test flight within Lagos with two passengers onboard before the accident.

“The bureau can be reached through info@aib.gov.ng and NSIB_Nigeria on its social media platforms. The bureau can also be reached on its emergency line +234-807-709-0909.

“The NSIB is a multimodal investigation agency charged with the mandate to investigate transportation accidents and serious incidents in Nigeria with the aim of identifying the probable causes and proffer safety recommendations that can prevent reoccurrence.”
