A video we have sighted captured the moment a plane crashed in Kwara State.
The plane has several passengers on board including some highly profiled Nigerians and the fortunate thing is that no one was injured.
The aircraft reportedly crashed upon landing in Ilorin, Kwara State, from Abuja and in a report by TheNation, the plane had a tyre burst and a bang which affected the cabin with luggage falling on passengers.
Per what we also gathered, due to the impact of the crash, the plane could not taxi to the tarmac and the crash occurred on Friday, July 23 at about 9.30 am.
This reportedly forced the authorities of the airport to close the runway of the airport and cancel all flights.
The video was shared by popular Nigerian blog, Instablog9ja on Instagram. Watch it below;
