As Nigeria Accident Investigation Bureau, AIB, on Wednesday dispatched two of its investigators to Port Harcourt International Airport to commence investigation into the Dana Air plane incident at the airport; Aviation stakeholders have started interrogating the culpability of the various aviation agencies that have the responsibility to ensure safe flight operations at the airport.

A very senior official of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, whose name cannot be in print for obvious reasons, has raised some posers he said he expects the AIB, to answer.

Confirming the commencement of the investigation, Mr. Tunji Oketunbi, General Manager, Public Affairs, AIB, said two of the bureau’s accident investigators have been sent to Port Harcourt Airport , the scene of the incident, to make sure no evidence is tampered with. They are to also commence immediate investigation as to why the Dana aircraft overshot the runway.

According to Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, the incident “was suspected to have been caused by a heavy rain, which was accompanied by strong wind and storm in Port Harcourt.”
