The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has responded to a plane which was found on a Lagos State road and caused gridlock.
There were speculations among motorists and residents that the plane crash-landed on Tuesday evening.
The aircraft, which had lost its wings, caused a logjam on the Ikeja-Agege road.
In a terse divulgence posted on its social media handles, FAAN told Nigerians to neglect the news.
“The aircraft was sold by the owner to a buyer, who was taking it to its final destination”, it reads.
An aviation analyst, Daniel Dikio had also tweeted his observation of the viral video.
“It is an Airbus A319, hasn’t flown domestically in years. I can see traces of a green logo, it likely belonged to First Nation Airways in its time.
“The wings are separated cleanly, this wouldn’t happen in a crash. The separation is a sign of dismantling.
“There is no damage to the fuselage, almost impossible given the purported circumstances”, Dikio noted.
