In breaking news, the Federal Government has released a statement saying that there were no survivors on the ill-fated Dana Air flight from Abuja to Lagos which crashed into Olaniyi Street, Iju, Lagos, earlier today.
The Dana Air flight from Abuja crashed in the afternoon into a building in Lagos while attempting to land safely, eyewitnesses reported. The neighborhood was several miles from the city’s airport, according to Patrick Abbah of the same agency, though low-flying airliners could be seen flying above the accident site.
The crash triggered three house fires, said Labaran Ahmed, a rescue officer. The state-run Voice of Nigeria news organization reported that a manufacturing company, a block of six apartments and a church were affected.
