Grounded! Angry passenger stands on RUNWAY in front of plane to protest flight cancellation (and it takes security two hours to remove him)

Man takes unusual action after his internal flight in Nigeria was cancelled
Eyewitness reports that security didn't arrive for more than two hours
At least two flights were delayed out of Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport


One angry passenger managed to delay flights out of a Nigerian airport after stepping out on the runway in front of a plane.

After finding out his flight from Abuja's Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport was cancelled, the flustered passenger decided to take his frustrations out by taking his luggage and entering the runway.

Passengers on board an Arik flight to Lagos were forced to disembark after the man refused to move, with one eyewitness saying security failed to show up and it took the pilot to plead with the man before the plane could take off.


At least two flights out of the Nigerian airport, one to Calabar and one to Lagos, were delayed by two hours by the man's actions.

Passenger Cedar Chinwuba, who was on the flight to Lagos, posted a series of photos on Twitter as the scene played out.

Speaking to MailOnline Travel, Mr Chinwuba said: 'It was very terrible. What came to my mind was that Nigeria Airport Authority needs to step up.

'For two hours, no security agent showed up. It got to the point the pilot announced that he had placed a call to Arik airline to send the Nigeria police but had no response.

'An announcement was made by the pilot that we couldn't take off due to some disgruntled passengers blocking the plane and he has tried to reach the airport security but no response.

'After a few minutes, he requested that due to security reasons those who wish to disembark from the trip should do so.

'Only in Nigeria issues like this happen and they never get penalised.


'One of the angry passenger I had a chat with stated that all they wanted was a senior officer of Arik coming to the tarmac to address the issue.

'It worries me as an airport user.'

He explained that along with all the other passengers on the Lagos flight were told to get off the plane and that 'no Arik flight was leaving Abuja.'

MailOnline Travel have contacted Arik Air, and are awaiting comment. The flight is believed to have taken off at 5.15pm local time, two hours behind schedule.

thats one mean and disappointed passenger.

Airline companies in Nigeria are always quick to cancel and postpone flights without calming the nerves of disappointed passengers

Fine arik may not run the desired kind of operations, but the passenger has surely gone overboard and may be ban from flying. Airlines have right to cancel flght, the issue should be what redress should the passenger seek as a result...surely one of them is not running to stop flights...he may regret that for the rest of his life.

PDP DEMONIC BLOOD SUCKING PARTY

The discombobulated dull cretin, a drunk idiot called Jonathan is a very clueless fool who has nothing in his dumb head to lead this country.

PDP is Bokoharam - Azazi

Alamaeseigha is an old fool and a shameless thief who has disgraced this country in many ways yet he is Jonafool's new father...The drunk fool gave him state pardon.

FFK is another big fool who has now been rejected by his fellow yoruba people. The fool is also a man-prostitute and "forked" Bianca in her hairy fair behind grin

Jonafool can only rule second term in Otuoke and any PDP slave who loves him so much can follow him to Otuoke.

Sambo is just a dullard and a very unfortunate misfit.

Doyin OKupe is a fat clueless fool

Patience is a very unfortunate shameless illiterate

Agbage, an old fool, remains "Just kidding" till 2019.

No be ab0ki?


This is how another mallam breached airport security to start throwing stones on a KLM flight that was on the ramp because the airline refused to sell ticket to him after he was insulting their staff in their ticketing office in Nicon.

This is just to show the level of impunity these ignoramus bastards operate and break the laws because at the end of the day they will never be arrested or let go.
