A private jet with 10 persons onboard has crash-landed near the Samuel Ladoke Akintola Airport in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

The incident happened on Friday around 11 am.

It was gathered that the jet missed the runway and skidded into the nearby bush. But there was no casualty.

Firefighters and rescue officials from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) were immediately deployed to the scene.

“It was a private plane from Abuja. It landed safely but overshot the runway. There was no casualty,” a spokesperson for the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Carol Adekotujo told Channels TV.

In November, a plane carrying the minister of power Adebayo Adelabu crash-landed at the same airport.
