Did Any Plane crash today In Lagos? Find out what happened

A viral video has surfaced on social media insinuating that a plane crash occurred in Ikeja, Lagos State.

A blog posted the video with the caption “Plane reportedly crash lands in Ikeja, Lagos.”

As of the time of this Fact Check, the post had generated about 4,000 comments on Instagram and reposted on different social media platforms.

Checks by Wothappen showed that the plane could be one of the moribund aircraft which had gone out of use.

Also dismissing the plane crash, Mr. Ibrahim Farinloye, Lagos Terrorial Head of National Emergency Management Agency told Daily Trust that he had reached out to control towers and other relevant sections in the aviation industry but they all said the incident didn’t happen.

He added, “The Control Tower could not confirm and no plane is missing on the TRACON. It is pertinent to clear the rumour going round on the purported plane crash landing around Ikeja with a obscuring footage in a crowded traffic scene.

“After due consultations with all critical stakeholders and tracking of all incoming and outgoing flights in Lagos, there is no plane missing so far.”

Wothappen can confirm that the video in circulation has no evidence of a fresh plane crash in Ikejaas claimed. Also, NEMA, an agency in charge of emergency response, has dispelled the claim.
