There has been information that a light plane, probably on test drive, crash landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos this morning.
According to latest reports, a 20-seater Associated Airline jet flying to Akure, Ondo believed to be carrying passengers heading for the burial of former Ondo State governor, Olusegun Agagu.
Some persons are feared dead and several others injured.
It is not yet known if there have been any casualties as the details are still sketchy.
Sources said the plane took off and immediately nose-dived into a building in the area.
According to a witness, the crash occurred at the local wing of the airport close to the section were JET-A1, plane fuel, is stored.
Fire service officials were seen evacuating the occupants of the plane.
“There’s a lot of smoke coming from the runway, but we can’t get access to it. There are fire-fighters rushing to the scene,” Rasaki Rhakod, who runs a car service around the airport, told Reuters by telephone.
Bayern Munich clinched UEFA Super Cup victory over Chelsea on penalties after a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Eden Arena in Prague on Friday.
The Premier League outfit took the lead early in the first half when Fernando Torres brilliantly finished off a flowing move, but it was pegged back shortly after the break by a long-distance Franck Ribery strike.
Mrs. Ifeanyi Chima was one of Lagos delegates that attended a peace rally organised for women by the First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, in Abuja on August 15, 2013.
The vehicle, which Chima and five other women were travelling in, had an accident at Gwagwalada Road, near Abuja, when they were going back to Lagos the following day.
Chima and four others were lucky to survive the accident, but sustained various degrees of injuries.
Their coordinator, Princess Abigael Adisa, died in the crash. Until her death, Adisa was the Coordinator of the Women for Change and Development Initiative in Ifako/Ijaye Local Government Area of Lagos.
Chima, in an interview with Saturday PUNCH at the Intensive Care Unit of Primus International Super Specialty Hospital (popularly known as Indian Hospital) in Karu on Tuesday, painted a sad picture of how she almost lost her limbs to the accident.
She called on Nigerian doctors to “sit up” like their foreign counterparts and improve on their relationship with patients.
She said, “I was involved in a fatal accident along Gwagwalada Road after the Women rally in Abuja on our way back to Lagos. We were six women and a driver in the vehicle; five of us had injuries. Our coordinator died.
“Five of us were brought to this hospital. I had a broken left arm and dislocation on my left leg. Mrs. Titilayo Olorunda also had a broken leg. She has been taken to another ward because she was formerly here (in the intensive care unit). But after a surgery she was taken to her ward. When I had the injury, I had some open wounds in my hands.”
Chima also gave a vivid account of her experiences at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital in Gwagwalada where, she said, a particular doctor exhibited poor attitude to patients.
“At the specialist hospital in Gwagwalada, instead of treating the skin, they covered it up. It was when they brought us here (Indian Hospital) when I was complaining bitterly that the doctor said they should open it. That was when they started treating the place I had bruises. I had my surgical operation some days ago.
“The doctors and nurses here are wonderful. This is what I want our doctors and nurses in Nigerian hospitals to learn. They should be caring. Human life needs to be taken care of. When you see somebody in pains, take care of that person because that person needs you at that point in time.”
JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia’s highest court has upheld the death sentence for a British woman convicted of smuggling $2.5 million worth of cocaine into the resort island of Bali, a court official said Friday.
The three-judge panel unanimously rejected Lindsay Sandiford’s appeal on Thursday, said Supreme Court spokesman Ridwan Mansur.
Sandiford, 57, was arrested last year when 3.8 kilograms (8.4 pounds) of cocaine was discovered stuffed inside the lining of her luggage at Bali’s airport. During the trial, she said she was forced to carry the drugs by a gang that threatened to hurt her children.
She was found guilty in January by a district court and sentenced to face a firing squad. She lost an appeal three months later when the Bali High Court upheld the lower court’s ruling.
Prosecutors had initially sought 15 years in prison for Sandiford, but the court surprised many by issuing a death sentence. She still has the opportunity under Indonesian law to seek a judicial review of her case and also appeal for presidential clemency.
“We are aware that Lindsay Sandiford’s appeal to the Indonesian Supreme Court has been denied,” Adam Rutland, spokesman for the British embassy in Jakarta, said in an email. “In line with our strong opposition to the death penalty in all circumstances, we will consider how to support any application for judicial review or clemency that Lindsay Sandiford chooses to make.”
Four other defendants – three Britons and an Indian – connected to the case were sentenced to jail terms ranging from one to six years.
Indonesia has strict anti-drug laws and most of the more than 40 foreigners on its death row were convicted on drug charges.
Well, this is pretty amazing.
One church’s hilarious — and effective — statement against Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin has gone viral after a local citizen put a photo of the church signboard online.
The sign for St. John’s Anglican Church reads simply, “Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine!”
Although not much is known about the photo, the church’s leaders seem to be following in the footsteps of the Gosford Anglican Church in Australia, which posted a similar message a few weeks ago.
Gosford made international headlines early in August after putting up a signboard that read, “Dear Christians, some people are gay, get over it, Love God.”
