There was panic on Thursday when a Dana flight taking off from Lagos to Abuja aborted take-off following a faulty engine, leaving many passengers stranded.

Passengers aboard the flight said they heard a loud explosion when the aircraft was about to take off, prompting the Pilot-in-Command to abort take-off.

Many of the passengers are said to be stranded at the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2).

One of the passengers who spoke with our correspondent, said, “The Captain was trying to manage the situation but the report we had was that the plane lost its two engines. We had two explosions and the plane lost two engines. It was God that saved us, it would have been a big disaster.

“Up till now the plane cannot move, the passengers are stranded here. They are not making any effort, they are not moving. We have complained to NCAA, they did not do anything.

“It happened around after 11. The flight 9J335 was scheduled for 10:15. Up till now they have not done anything. They have not scheduled us, they are just keeping quiet. Nobody is talking to us, it is really a very pathetic case. We have made an official complaint to NCAA.”
