Aero Contractors through their Managing Director, Captain Ado Sanusi on Wednesday in a brief chat with Channels TV has explained the incident that led to the cabin being filled up in smoke in the tuesday evening flight from Port Harcourt to Lagos.
Apparently, he said the smoke started in the cargo section of the aircraft and got into the cabin through the air-conditioning system. However, the pilot landed safely.

Recall that yesterday a female twitter user ORIAKU (OKWESILIEZE) tweeted about the incident as she also thank God for a safe landing.
“Everyone on this Aero Contractor flight could have died today but for God. I’m grateful. Nigerian airports need new directors/ flights.
“God knows I said it that this plane was too old to be functioning in Nigeria before I boarded. At the clinic now getting checked on”
She also said there was no apology or explanation from the management to the passengers.
Though, she stated that officials of the Fire Service Emergency Unit were already waiting on the runway as the plane eventually landed safely in Lagos.
