Drama in Lagos as Aircraft stops at Filling Station

This was a mild drama in Lagos on Thursday as a scrap aircraft, belonging to Bethel Ministries was found at Dapsey Oil filling station, Igando.

Residents woke up this morning to find the light plane with registration number N972TF at Dapsey filling station along the Lagos State University (LASU) on the outskirts of Lagos but none of those living in the area axis reported hearing any sound of plane distress all through the night.

But Nigerians began to panic after rumour spread that a plane had crashed in Lagos on Thursday morning.

However, The General Manager, Air Traffic Control Operations of the Nigerian Air Space Management Agency (NAMA), Mr John Onyegiri, described the scrapped plane as a tricycle.

According to him, the wingless plane was being towed by a van to an unknown destination for education purposes.

He explained that the wings of the plane had to be taken off to ease movement and traffic on the road.

He called the plane a “tricycle” after the wings had been removed.

Outrage as Israel begins mass deportation of African migrants

Israel this week started deporting a planeload of migrants, the first of a series of weekly repatriation flights intended as a stepping stone to dealing with much greater influxes of migrants from West and central Africa.

While it is uncertain how many of the deportees are Nigerians, about 60,000 Africans have crossed into Israel across its porous border with Egypt in recent years. Israel says the vast majority are job seekers, disputing arguments by humanitarian agencies that they should be considered for asylum.

Many in Israel see the Africans as a threat to public order and to the demographics of the Jewish state. Street protests, some violent, have put pressure on the government, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned of Africans “flooding” and “swamping” Israel, threatening “the character of the country”.

Some of the migrants have accused government right-wingers of racist incitement and inflammatory language. Some Israelis too, are uncomfortable with the idea of rounding up members of a different racial group and holding them in camps, seeing a betrayal of Jewish values and even distant echoes of the Nazi Holocaust, all in a country built by immigrants and refugees.
