Nigeria is one of the African countries where civil aviation security is weak. Efforts are being made to raise safety and security standards, especially after 2005 when several serious accidents have occurred. This serious accident comes at 24 hours after a cargo plane exited the runway at Kotoka International Accra, Ghana, and got into a bus. 10 people on the bus died from the impact!
The crashed aircraft was a McDonnell Douglas MD-83. The causes of the accident recorded earlier in Lagos, Nigeria are still unknown!
The accident is still under investigation, but the first results say the aircraft had hit the power lines and then crashed over the building near the airport.
