Dead stowaway found on Lagos-Jo’burg flight

The “lifeless” body of a stowaway has been found in the wheel well of a plane which flew from Nigeria’s commercial hub, Lagos, to South Africa’s main city, Johannesburg, Arik Air has said in a statement.

South African engineers at OR Tambo International Airport discovered the body during an inspection of Arik Air’s A330-200 passenger aircraft, the firm added.

“Investigations are ongoing to determine how the stowaway found his way into the aircraft’s main wheel well,” it said.
