Arik Air has expressed  shock over  how a teenager at the Benin Airport beat aviation security checks at the city Airport  to stowaway into the main wheel of its aircraft.

It urged the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria  ( FAAN) to immediately address the situation .

The airline’s spokesman Mr Banjo Ola, said  in a statement :”  The pilot of Arik Air flight W3 544, departing Benin Airport for Lagos at 9.00am today 24thAugust, 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”.

  1. Sharp guy needs hustle….The boy must be inducted into the Hall of Fame, and Guinness book of record……#TRUE……He's the first true adventurous HERO in NIGERIA…..Like Spiderman, Ironman, and so on.

  2. This is the result of watching too much action movies. Having said the above. This teenage boy really needs supervision. . . Although, I must confess that he’s brave.
