Follow-up: Boy Who Hid In An Arik Plane Tyre Thought It Was US Bound


The teenage stowaway, Daniel Ihekina, who was arrested at the Lagos Airport after flying in the tyre hole of an Arik plane from Benin to Lagos on Saturday morning, thought he was on a US-bound flight.

An airport source, who did not want his name in print spoke to Punch

“From what we heard, the boy said he was being maltreated and tried to escape from his parents. He thought he was on his way to the US.The parents have travelled to Lagos by road, to get him back.”

The General Manager, Corporate Communications, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Mr. Yakubu Dati, said

“The residential address the boy gave to us was traced to a church in Benin by our airport manager and his team. So, there is need to hand over the teenager to the SSS who are experts in such investigations. They will carry out further investigation on the matter.”
