A 44-year-old man has slumped and died at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos while undergoing boarding.
It was revealed that the man named Jude Oladapo got a shocking message that his wife was dead.
This was disclosed by Joseph Alabi, the spokesperson for the MMIA police command, who said the incident happened on Saturday when the deceased was waiting to board an Air France flight out of the country.
Alabi said the passenger was said to have slumped suddenly after receiving news that his wife had died.
According to him, Oladapo was confirmed dead by Ajayi Olamide, a medical doctor at the MMIA medical clinic.
Alabi said the corpse had been deposited at the Air Force hospital mortuary.
The police airport command spokesperson also dismissed claims that a Royal Air Maroc aircraft, with registration number CN-ROR, was burgled while landing at MMIA on Friday.
He said the police had carried out an investigation and confirmed that all necessary security landing procedures were observed.
“There is a standard procedure, which includes an escort vehicle following an aircraft that is landing, which will make it difficult for any invader to approach the aircraft,” he said.
“The aviation security officials confirmed that they arrived at the aircraft with its baggage cabin door already opened which might have been due to other factors.”
