A passenger on the flight said passengers suspected the plane, with flight number VL 2102, was faulty before takeoff, but they were assured by the pilot and the crew that all was well.
A few minutes after take-off, the plane had to return to the Lagos Airport due to the problem.
“They want to kill over 100 passengers with their faulty plane” a passenger, Oladejo Olowu, told PREMIUM TIMES.
The plane was scheduled to get to Abuja before a final journey to Yola, Adamawa State.
The Medview incident happened a day after a Boeing 737 aircraft belonging to Air Peace on Monday suffered a burst tyre while preparing for take-off at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.
The incident occurred at about 11 a.m. forcing the pilot to abort the flight.
The aircraft was to convey 105 passengers from Lagos to Abuja.
