The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has grounded the Aero Contractors flight NG316 engulfed in smoke about 20 minutes after take-off, causing panic among the passengers.
Image maker of the agency, Sam Adurogboye said the situation prompted the deployment of firefighting trucks to the Murtala Mohammed Airport 2, Lagos, to curtail any fire when the plane carrying 52 adults and one infant finally landed.
He said “Our team of investigators is currently working to find out what caused the smoke because that is part of the responsibility of the NCAA”.
Besides, Aero Contractors management, led by Ado Sanusi, had ordered for full scale investigation into the incident according to a statement.
