An Arik Air flight with Lagos as its destination was aborted on Wednesday evening in Abuja after some technical issues. The plane’s engines did not start thereby causing a delay in the schedule of the flight.
The Lagos flight which should have taken off by 7 pm was delayed till 8. Passengers were informed as they were about to board that the plane had some issues and they would need to wait for another aircraft coming from Lagos to take them. Another plane eventually arrived a little after an hour.
After the October 3 crash in Lagos, the Aviation Ministry has been in the news lately over the purchase of 2 bullet-proof BMW cars for Princess Stella Oduah, the Minister for Aviation.
