Another private jet conveying some dignitaries, on Friday, overshot the runway at the Ibadan airport, Oyo State.
Friday’s incident occurred barely two months after a similar incident was reported at the same airport involving an aircraft conveying the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu.
The latest incident involved a Bombardier private jet with registration number N580KR.
No fewer than 10 VIPs were also on board the flight.
There was however no death or injury as the passengers were safely disembarked from the bush area as firefighters were swiftly mobilised to the scene.
Spokesman for the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau, Tunji Oketunmbi, confirmed the incident.
He said a team from the NSIB had been dispatched to the site.
Recall that Ibadan Airport, a category six facility, was also in the news in November last year when another private jet overshot the runway.
NSIB in its preliminary report on that incident urged the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency to ensure that it strictly observes the airport operational hours as published in the relevant Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) and not permit extensions beyond the airport limitations.
The Bureau’s spokesperson said the investigation thus far revealed that the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) should ensure that Flints Aero Services Limited operates within the limits of the approval given to it, under Section 18.104.22.168 of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations 2015.
