Disused plane sparks crash hoax in Lagos
Lagosians were rattled yesterday by the rumour of a likely plane crash.
Crowds of people rushed to Igando on the outskirts of the city to find a Dornier plane parked at a filling station. There were no signs of a crash.
It all turned out to be a rumour. The aircraft, which belongs to Lagos preacher Gabrial Odunyemi of Bethel Church, had been abandoned for long. It was being moved to a training facility in Badagry, the authorities said.
