An aircraft belonging to ValueJet skidded off the runway at the Port Harcourt International Airport in Rivers State on Tuesday afternoon.
Details of the incident are still sketchy, but it is gathered that the aircraft landed in an emergency way around 3:30 pm. There are reports of injuries, but no deaths have been reported.
This is the third plane accident in Nigeria in as many weeks. On Sunday, an Aero Contractors Airlines Boeing 737 jet crash-landed at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja. Last week, a private HS25B aircraft operated by Flint Aero narrowly avoided tragedy when it crash-landed on the runway at Ibadan Airport in Oyo State.
