Over a month ago, the scrap of a plane caused panic in Lagos as rumour spread that another aircraft had crashed. The scrap plane according to reports was formerly owned by the late Apostle Gabriel Oduyemi of Bethel Ministries, Ajah, Lagos but released to Captain Ekeinde. While it was being towed from Muritala Mohammed Airport to Badagry area, one of the tyres burst and residents woke up to see it parked in the premises of a filling station in Igando.
Ekeinde later confirmed that the scrap plane belonged to him. “The aircraft will be situated in a multi-purpose and entertainment centre which will be open very soon,” he disclosed.
