Independent Ombudsman:

Sharing Experience...‎
(courtesy of a friend and brother, Dayo Alabi)

This happened today, February 9, 2016...and I consider this experience worthy of share, if not for anything, but to sensitize and galvanize each and everyone of us to take vigilance and caution as serious business...

I let my brother Dayo Alabi give his narratives:

"Help me thank God that the Dana Plane I boarded to Abuja landed safely in Abuja instead of the "breaking news" that would probably have announced that "Dana plane with xyz passangers en-route Abuja hijacked and flown to abc country"!‎

We boarded the plane scheduled to take off at 1.23pm.  

However,  one of the air-hostesses became suspicious of one of the passengers who was earlier brought into the plane in a wheelchair with left hand bandaged from shoulder to the fingers; same with his left leg. 

The hostess's suspicion arose from the discovery that the man's hand luggage was not passed thru the security screening machines. 

To cut a long story short, the Airport Security Team was invited and the bag opened. It was reported that four fully loaded guns were in the bag! 

The "sick/injured" man  insisted he could not stand/walk. A wheelchair was brought in by the security team to take him out.  An accomplice was also off-loaded from the plane. 

The pilot then apologized profusely for the 37mins delay "due to security breach" saying we should all be thankful as "it is better to be delayed than to be sorry". He then went on rendering beautiful songs (not religious songs anyway) from taxing to take-off to the delight of passangers who were all praising God‎..."

ps:

I thought to share because that Dana Air-Hostess, in saner climes, and to encourage diligence in others, would be on a future honours' list of an appreciative country. 

I do hope fervently that she, like Olajumoke Orisaguna, - the now famous bread-hawker ‎shot to limelight by Sister T. Y. Bello's un-quiet action, - will eventually be recognized by the authorities in Nigeria.‎

I also hope that my brother Dayo Alabi, unlike many that were on that plane, but chose to keep 'mute' or indifferent to 'shout-out' on their  horrible encounter, will, in the fulness of time also get recognition for helping to bring this episode to public disclosures.

Most important, I hope this narrative nudges us all to be active participants at vigilance, caution and paying attention to details in matters of public safety and well-being.

A word, as thee saying goes,  is enough for the discerning...


God Rules!‎

To avoid stories that touch, be security conscious.

That being said, we will not fall into the hands of hijackers in Jesus Name!

Almost 48 hours after the incident and all we have is a 3rd hand account of the incident. How did your bloodclat brother see the guns from his seat and how dafuq did the air hostess see that the man's bag didnt go through the security scanner?

You **** ask for 'sauce' for stories where its not relevant yet post this completely unverified balderdash

What a country where everything is taken for granted.


A wheelchair passenger detonated a bomb recently in another country, and though he was the sole casualty, it was a lesson learned to increase security and scrutiny for wheel chair passengers.

But People in positions to do something in Nigeria are just after stealing money.

In saner climes, an alert will be sent out and a procedure put in place to check these wheel chair bound passengers. But a country faced with terrorism, we do nothing.

Shame!
