There was confusion today, Saturday
at the Benin Airport after a teenage
boy allegedly stowed away in the tyre
hold of an Arik Aircraft from Benin to
Lagos.
The Aircraft with registration number,
5N-MJG Flight 44, left Benin Airport at
9am for Lagos with top officials of the
Edo state government on board.
And when it landed at the domestic
wing of MMA, Lagos, the teenage boy,
who apparently had sneaked into the
aircraft main wheel well jumped out,
shocking everybody.

Arik’s spokesperson, Banji Ola said:

The management of Arik Air has
expressed shock over the
incident wondering how the
teenager beat the Aviation
Security personnel at the Benin
Airport to get to the runway.
The pilot of Arik Air flight W3
544, departing Benin Airport for
Lagos at 9.00am today 24th
August, 2013 reported to the
control tower the presence of a
strange boy in the bush about
200 – 300 meters at the end of
runway 23.
The control tower told the
Captain that they were sending
security men to the place to
arrest the boy.
As the captain was making his
final turn, preparatory for take-
off, a cabin crew called his
attention to the information by
some of the passengers that they
saw a boy running towards the
airplane.
The First Officer confirmed that
they had observed it earlier and
alerted the control tower which
responded that they have sent
the patrol team to arrest the
boy.  The Captain again reported
to the control tower and was
informed that the situation was
under control and that he had
been cleared for take-off.
On arrival at the domestic wing
of MMA, Lagos, a teenage boy,
who apparently had sneaked into
the aircraft main wheel well
jumped out and was arrested by
Arik personnel and handed over
to FAAN security.
The management of Arik Air has
expressed shock over the
incident wondering how the
teenager beat the Aviation
Security personnel at the Benin
Airport to get to the runway.
