In an unexpected incident, a ValueJet CRJ 900 Bombardier aircraft slipped off the runway at Port-Harcourt International Airport, causing momentary panic and chaos among passengers.

The aircraft which landed at 15.32 hours with 62 passengers and five flight crew members overshot the runway.

However, despite the alarming situation, the aircraft with registration 5N-BXR landed safely, leaving passengers perplexed about the unusual occurrence.

Vanguard gathered that the incident did not result in any damage to the aircraft.

Managing Director of ValueJet, Capt. Dapo Majekodunmi explained that Captain Stanley Balami reported the slip was a result of algae on the taxiway, preventing the aircraft from maintaining the centerline.

Assuring the public of ValueJet’s commitment to safety, Capt. Majekodunmi stated that the airline’s operations remain normal without any disruptions.

Too many aircraft accident in the last two or three weeks. This should be the third if I’m not mistaken. What the fvck is going on? NCAA, FAAN, NSIB and the aviation ministry should immediately carry out a comprehensive investigation of all the commercial aircraft in the country and put in all the necessary safety measures. They should not wait till the occurrence of a fatal accident before taking action.

Again?

The lackadaisical attitude of the aviation sector is too much. Most of these aeroplanes are not fit for usage again.

But then, it is Nigeria, anything can go
