The Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) Plc has commenced investigation on how its equipment damaged an Air Peace Airbus A320 Aircraft at Murtala Muhammed Airport on Wednesday. 

In a statement on Thursday, the company’s Group Executive Director, Business and Corporate Services, Dr Sola Obabori, explained that the management had invited relevant regulatory and security agencies to commence investigation into the incident. 

He said: “The management expresses sadness over the incident because Air Peace is one of the biggest privately-owned airlines in Africa and it is proud to have them as one of its prime. 

“We share a very cordial relationship with the airline and we have been together all these years serving them diligently and professionally since inception. 

“Therefore, we have invited relevant regulatory and security agencies to swing into action and especially investigate the subject of sabotage and take an independent look at the incident.” 


Obabori said to enable proper and unhindered investigation, some senior operations officials had been suspended, while others were being investigated.
