MMIA’s international wing was temporarily shutdown on Thursday, here is why

The international wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, was shut temporarily on Thursday morning after a corpse of a man was found on its runway (18R).

This was disclosed by an official of the airport, who preferred anonymity.

According to her, it could not be ascertained the cause of the death of the man, whose identity was not known as at Thursday evening.

She said, “The runway was temporarily shut down while a team of officials from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria and the Nigeria Police Force evacuated the corpse from the runway. The shutdown affected some international flights from landing and taking off from the airport’s terminal.

“One of the flights that could not land due to the shutdown was an Ethiopian Airlines flight 3907, a Boeing 77F aircraft with registration number ETAVN, which was coming from Lome, Togo to Lagos, Nigeria. It was diverted back to Lome after holding for a while.”
