A corpse was allegedly discovered in an Arik aircraft last night, sources told P.M.NEWS today.

Our sources said that the deceased passenger was a man. However, no one is sure if he was a genuine or illegal passenger.

Details about the tragic incident or the deceased were sketchy at the time of filing this report.

The media officer of Arik Air, Mr. Adebanji Ola told our correspondent that it was a security issue and did not go into details.

He said: “It’s a security issue beyond the airline’s control. The airport security operatives will be in a better position to give details.”

The Media officer to the Director General of NCAA, Mr. Sam Adurogboye, sent our correspondent back to Arik when he was asked to comment about the incident.

“Talk to Arik,” he said.

The incident comes weeks after a similar incident happened on an Arik flight to the United States.
