Plane crushFifteen people were killed when an Embraer passenger plane crashed shortly after take-off just outside Lagos airport’s domestic terminal on Thursday, Nigerian authorities said.

On 14 September 2013,  Prophet Maxillar Mumo had this to say ::

In Jesus name I pray: I see one of these big planes will be in trouble soon. Pray to God that this disaster shall be limited. I leave it at that because I see fire bursting mid air and I see the crash is pointless as the damage shall be already done but God’s Hand can limit this disaster if the church prays. Psalms 54.
After the man of God gave a prophesy on the 14th of September 2013 that he was shown that one of the big planes will be in trouble and asked that we pray because he saw it happening soon; it has come to pass! Today is a sad day for Nigeria after a plane crash landed bursting into flames just as the man of God prophesied indicating that there will be no need to pray to stop this as it was meant to happen adding that we can only pray to limit.

Airports Authority general manager Yakubu Dati told a news conference the plane was an Embraer 120, a Brazilian make.

The Associated Airlines plane was flying from Nigeria’s commercial capital to Akure, a southwestern town about 140 miles (225 km) away.

“An Embraer 120 plane came down at 9.32 a.m. (0832 GMT) with 20 passengers on board, inclusive of crew, and five people survived,” Dati said. “We have recovered the black box.”

He said he did not know the engine’s maker. But a diplomatic source told Reuters the engine was a Pratt & Whitney Canada, a unit of United Technologies Corp, PW100.

Aviation Ministry spokesman Joe Obi had earlier said 27 people were on the plane but Lagos state emergency management agency chief Olufemi Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu said at the site that in fact only 20 of the 27 seats were filled.

Several local radio stations and Channels TV reported that it was carrying a family and the body of former governor of Ondo state Olusegun Agagu to his funeral.

An iHarare reporter saw emergency workers bring out a coffin from the wreckage.

“The plane was making a lot of noise before it came down,” said witness Rasheed Olajide, an engineer working at the airport. “It appeared to reverse back to avoid crashing into the residential area. It came down at a 45 degree angle.”

Air crashes are relatively common in Nigeria, which despite having Africa’s second-biggest economy has a poor safety record.

“There’s a lot of smoke coming from the runway. There are fire-fighters rushing to the scene,” Rasaki Rhakod, who runs a car service around the airport, told iHarare.
