The airport’s Aerodrome Rescue and Firefighting Service (ARFFS) was quickly dispatched to extinguish the fire.


According to Dr. Mike Ogirima, former President of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), who provided an account of the incident, the tyre burst shortly after takeoff at Yola Airport.



However, the plane crashed-landed in Abuja, with emergency personnel already on the ground putting out the fire before the passengers disembarked right on the runway.


“We thank God,” Ogirima said. We’re still on the runway, and the pilot has assured us that everything is fine. He’s signalled for the stairs, and we’re disembarking from the runway to be evacuated to the airport building’s arrival hall.



“We thank God because we saw the tyre pull out right from the airport in Yola and went into prayer session.” To avoid any panic, I never announced it as a surgeon, but we bless God.”

The passengers were safely disembarked from the runway, and the runway was temporarily closed until the aircraft could be evacuated.



According to an airline official who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust, the passengers safely disembarked.


He thanked God for the safety of all the passengers and crew members.



He stated that the airline would officially notify the appropriate authorities in order to conduct an investigation into the incident.
