Terrorist Scare At Lagos Airport: See the strange man arrested today after trying to force his way into a plane(Photo)

The man appeared at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos this morning with a rock sack and approached a Medview plane that was taxiing. Fortunately, the captain of the plane noticed him and used high engine thrust to blow him away. See the burn marks on his body? He tried to escape but was caught by airport security who are now interrogating him. The airport was later shut down and vigorous search was conducted...
See eye-witness reports below...

Different people have been talking about an incident which happened at the Lagos airport today. A blog reader sent in this...


"I don't know how else to get this information out to the general public so I decided to contact you. I just arrived in Lagos on a flight from Owerri. As the plane was taxiing to a halt, I looked out the window and saw something rolling on the runway like a piece of luggage that fell out of a moving plane. When we disembarked the aircraft, I realize that it was a man that had been knocked down to the ground by the air from another aircraft on the tarmac.
The man got up and was severely bruised from rolling on the tarmac. He took off into the bush by the tarmac in spite of the severe bruising he suffered. Some ground staff tried to catch him, but till we were picked up from the tarmac they hadn't caught him. People started to speculate if he was a boko haram terrorist trying to plant something on an aircraft, or perhaps he had already planted something and was just trying to get away. Please post to see if the appropriate authorities can investigate and perhaps comment to let us know that air travel is still safe. It was quite scary, and the speculation of terrorism is even more scary.

There was a terrorist scare at MMIA today. Read the other one ...
MedView airline and terrorist  fear. We were about to take off from Lagos to Abuja on Medview flight 2108 11.15 am flight this morning. The plane was already on the runway when the pilot suddenly slowed down. We saw a man beside the wing of the plane carrying a black bag. As the plane moved forward, he tried to jump as if trying to grab something.
At first we thought it was an engineer but what will an engineer be doing beside a moving plane?
He tried this several times. As he tried for the fourth time to jump or hold  maybe "throw the bag into the engine, the pilot saw him and turned on the engine to the highest. The wind blew him away, causing him to rumble and roll on the floor. He was burnt and severely bruised .
He stood up and ran to the other side of the plane limping. Two airport authorities ran towards him and he apprehended by airport security
We panicked and the pilot announced that the plane has been compromised, so we disembarked and we are waiting for the three o clock flight.
