Missing Plane Found 48 Hours Later

48 hours after it was declared missing, Beechcraft 1900D light aircraft has been found. The wreckage of the plane was located in Dabu Village in Yalla Local Council of Cross River State where it crashed. All the three crew members were confirmed dead in the mishap.

The sad thing is that even if these crew members survived, 48 hours is a long time 4 dem to have survived. In every sector of our economy we keep experiencing disappointing performance from those appointed to lead an organisation.

The aircraft, which departed Lagos at 07.35 a.m. for Obudu Cattle Ranch in Cross River State, made contact with the Enugu Control Tower at about 7. 54 a.m. and lost touch with it at 08.04 a.m.

Prior to the discovery of the scene of the crash, Nigeria had reached out to neighbouring Cameroun to help it trace the chartered aircraft. The Minister of State for Air Transport, Hassan Felix Hyat, told journalists yesterday that the aircraft was found in the hilly village very close to Obudu Cattle Ranch Resort. Earlier yesterday, Hyat disclosed that the government had contacted the Camerounian authorities to assist it trace the plane in its shore

God will save us from ineptitude leaders. Nigeria is certainly going to another level because years before now it would have been impossible to probe a sector with high profile individuals mentioned in scams.
