Ikeja: In a bizarre video, a man in Nigeria was seen climbing on top of a plane’s wing and the video has gathered a lot of reactions. The video was recorded from inside the plane.

According to Daily Post Nigeria, the incident took place in Murtala Muhammed Airport on July 19. As the Azman Air flight was preparing for takeoff, the man broke onto the airside, climbed on the wing and put his handbag in one of the engines.

An Instagram user shared a post with two videos of the strange incident.

He explained in his post that the man showed up when the plane was taxing on the runway. When the pilot spotted him running towards the plane, he slowed down and put off the engine.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Guys this is an emmergency o. For 30 minutes we have been stuck at the runway at MMIA by an unidentified man who ran to the aircraft with a bag. Security has not showed up and everyone is panicking. I have so many questions to ask but right now I can't even breathe. Pls share this to all relevant authorities. Dear Nigeria!!!!! Update: He has finally been apprehended and we've all disembarked from the flight. FAAN authorities showed up 23minutes into the scene but were scared to approach him. Security eventually shows up after 37mins. ______ How it happened!! So our flight was taxing on the runway and about taking off when this man shows up running towards the moving aircraft from the bush. The pilot and a few passengers spotted him running towards the aircraft and the pilot immediately slowed down and quickly put off the engine. The guy approaches the plane with gloves and starts walking around and under the aircraft holding a bag which he dropped inside the engine. Thanks to the Pilot of the Azman Airline for quickly observing and taking swift action.. I still have a million and one questions to ask cos anything could have gone wrong! Nigeria will work perfectly someday. This I know. 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬
