Angry Passenger Block Runway At Nnamdi Azikwe Airport, Abuja

One angry passenger managed to delay flights out of a Nigerian airport after stepping out on the runway in front of a plane.

After finding out his flight from Abuja’s Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport was cancelled, the flustered passenger decided to take his frustrations out by taking his luggage and entering the runway.

Passengers on board an Arik flight to Lagos were forced to disembark after the man refused to move, with one eyewitness saying security failed to show up and it took the pilot to plead with the man before the plane could take off.

The man was angry that his flight to Sokoto was cancelled, and so entered the runway

At least two flights out of the Nigerian airport, one to Calabar and one to Lagos, were delayed by two hours by the man’s actions.
