Just In: Chaos as Man Jumps on Plane at Lagos Airport [Video]

There was pandemonium at the Lagos Airport on Friday when an unknown man carrying a bag climbed the fuselage of an aircraft.

The aircraft which had passengers on board was parked at the apron preparatory for taxing through the taxiway into the runway for take-off when the incident happened.

After beating security on duty to gain access to the apron, the man climbed the parked aircraft and settled at the compartment housing the fuel tank.

Passengers onboard who recorded the unauthorized activities were confused, shouting and unsure of what was going on.

Officials of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria ( FAAN) said the man has been arrested and taken to an isolated area around the Lagos Airport called Tango City.

The incident sparked concerns about the porosity of the Lagos Airport where rising cases of stowaways and other unauthorized activities are commonplace.

It has also raised questions about the vulnerability of the premier gateway without adequate perimeter and security fences.
