Tinubu’s Minister, Bayo Adelabu Escapes Plane Crash; It Is A Fake News – NUJ Source

2 min read

The current minister of power from Oyo State, serving under President Bola Tinubu, Chief Adebayo Adelabu‘s plane has been reportedly skidded off the runway last night in Oyo State.

According to DAILY TRUST, information earlier filtered in that the aircraft crashed, but it was later discovered that it crash-landed.

Although the newspaper claimed it could not state if the minister or those on board sustained any injury, the incident was said to have happened after the Nigerian Metrological Agency (NiMET) issued a travel warning based on hazy weather.

The aircraft departed Abuja with Ibadan as its destination, but landed short of the threshold by about 50 meters and skidded into a bushy ditch close to the runway.

Although the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB) has been informed of the serious incident, the authority has yet to issue a statement.

A spokesperson with NSIB, Mr. Tunji Oketunmbi, told Daily Trust that the Bureau’s investigators were on the ground in Ibadan to ascertain the immediate and remote causes of the incident.

While reacting to the report on the platform of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), the Chairman of the council, Com. Demola Babalola, warned the member of the union to disregard the news, saying it is fake and not true.

“News on ‘Bayo Adelabu’s flight caught fire is FAKE’

“Colleagues, pls disregard it, Babalola warned.
