A 25 year old stowaway has been arrested after he was found hiding under the tyre carriage of a Medview Aircraft on a domestic flight at the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal in Lagos.
The unnamed stowaway succeeded in gaining access into the tyre compartment of the aircraft which was ready for taxing.
According to a source, the man was discovered during a final inspection of the plane after the pilot noticed strange movements inside the compartment. The man was handed over to the police, confessing to have taken the decision out of desperation to leave the country in the search of a better life.
A police officer at the domestic wing confirmed the arrest adding that the stowaway had been handed over to Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for further investigation.
