The Agency’s spokesman for South-West, Ibrahim Farinloye said what people saw was a scrap aeroplane being evacuated from the airport.
According to him, the scrap aircraft may have been cited at Mangoro area in Lagos and not Igando. His words, “It was just the scrap of an aircraft that was being evacuated from the airport.
“The federal government had issued a directive that all scrap aircrafts be evacuated from all airports, as well as scrap ships from our waterways”.
Farinloye described the rumour as “one of the evils of social media. The evacuation is usually done at night to forestall this kind of public misinformation by mischief makers. We were there at 11.20 p.m. yesterday,” the spokesman said.
