A private jet belonging to NestOil Plc has skidded off the Abuja airport runway.
The aircraft lost it’s landing gear in the process.
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) in its reaction to the incident said the runway of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, would be closed for the next 30 minutes.
“This is to enable the Authority take safety precautions,” it said.
The announcement by FAAN means flights cannot take off or land at the airport, a development that triggered apprehension among passengers. The runway has since been reopened and normal operations have resumed.
