One month after Air Peace announced the commencement of Ilorin flight from Lagos and Abuja, an Ilorin bound aircraft belonging to the airline crash landed with scores of passenger and crew members on board.
The aircraft crash landed around 9.30am on Friday morning upon landing in Ilorin from Abuja.
However, following the incident, the runway of the Ilorin International Airport has been closed to traffic.
Speaking to LEADERSHIP, the Spokespersons, Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), Tunji Oketunbi and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority of Nigeria (NCAA), Sam Adurogboye, said they are not aware of the incident.
Recall that the Air Peace had on June 17 announced the commencement of Ilorin flight from Lagos and Abuja.
