Governor Adeleke escapes plane crash


Governor Ademola Adeleke's spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, has alleged sabotage over the averted air plane crash involving the Governor and some of his aides.

Governor Adeleke was scheduled to fly from Lagos to Abuja on his elder brother, Dr Deji Adeleke's private jet but the pilot had to call it off after discovering fault in the engine a minute just as it began taxing.

However contrary to report that the engine exploded after taxing, Rasheed disclosed that a loud noise was heard just after taxing on the tarmac.

He also described the excuse given by owners of the hanger that a bird nest within the engine led to the fault as flimsy, saying their are strong reasons to believe that the two engines in the aircraft were tampered with.

According to him, the highly technically equipped aircraft was well maintained with the best technical crew and was never an unused platform where  birds could build nests.

"Contrary to the claim by the hanger owner that  birds' nests caused the incident, birds' nests are made with straws not bidding wires as in this case. 

"The near fatal incident was averted shortly after boarding and less than two minutes after commencement of taxing on the tarmac. 

"An early warning noise from the engines immediately prompted the pilots to direct evacuation of the passengers. Everything happened within five minutes.

"Early reports from internal investigation indicated sabotage. But  the authorities, locally and internationally, are still investigating the incident.
