Yesterday, many Lagosians, especially those around Igando area of the state, woke up to see an ‘American Wonder’ in their neighbourhood. It was a plane that was parked at a filling station in the area called Dapsey.
Immediately, rumour filled social media platforms and some blogs that another plane crash had occurred, which caused scare until NEMA debunked the rumour and said the plane was an old jet being towed to a dump site.
But now, it has been revealed that the small plane is actually owned by the husband of Nollywood star, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Capt Mathew, who is a Nigerian pilot.
According to information gathered, the plane was released to Omotola’s hubby for an educational use in Badagry. The jet was being towed at midnight from the Lagos airport to Badagry, when it developed a burst tyre.
When it was realised that it would be difficult to take the plane to Badagry with burst tyre, it was advised to be parked at the petrol station at about 2am.
The plane was formally owned by late Pastor Gabriel Oduyemi of Bethel Ministry, Lagos, before Capt Mathew request to have it.
