Pilot Jamyl Abubakar, son of Nigeria’s Inspector General of police,
narrowly escaped death on Saturday, May 10, after his IRS plane
crash-landed at Niger Republic.
The aircraft, Fokker 100, belonging to IRS airlines crash-landed
yesterday night around 7:30pm in Niger Republic on its way back to
Nigeria after C (maintenance) checks.
The two people on-board the aircraft, the pilot and co-pilot, survived the crash.
When the Police Boss was contacted, he confirmed the incident, saying
he was full of gratitude to God for preserving the life of the pilot
and his son, the co-pilot.
Jamyl had on May 8th tweeted photos of the brand new looking 5N-SIK plane after a test flight.
He excitedly announced it was the best looking aircraft he had seen.
