Stowaway From Nigeria Found Dead In Arik's Undercarriage In Johannesburg SA



The lifeless body of a stowaway was Wednesday found in the main wheel well of one of Arik Air’s A330-200 aircraft at the Oliver Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg.

Spokesman for Arik Air, Banji Ola, in a statement, said the aircraft operated the scheduled Lagos-Johannesburg flight that departed the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at 3:55pm on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 and arrived Johannesburg shortly before 11pm.

He disclosed that engineers of South African Airways Technical facility at the Oliver Tambo International Airport where the aircraft was scheduled for a routine maintenance check discovered the body of the stowaway during their inspection phase.

He said investigations were ongoing to determine how the stowaway found his way into the aircraft’s main wheel well.
It has been a long time that the country has witnessed a stowaway incident which then became a big security issue in the aviation sector.

NB: A stowaway is a person who secretly boards a vehicle, such as a ship, an aircraft, a train, cargo truck or bus, in order to travel without paying and without being detected.
