Luck ran out of an unidentified young man whose age was put at around 25, was on Wednesday apprehended and handed over to the police at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, for attempting to stowaway on board a Med View Airline aircraft.

Our source reliably gathered that the man had successfully hidden himself in the tyre compartment of the aircraft which was ready for taxiing from the private terminal known as MMA2.

Luck ran out on him when an eagle eyed pilot caught him when he was doing the last inspection round the plane before take off.

He was said to have confessed hiding around the airport for two weeks trying to achieve his purpose during interrogation.

The stowaway was said to have also confessed that he did what he did out of desperation to leave the country in search of greener pasture.

He said that he found his way into the craft by jumping through the fence that demarcates the VIP section from the tarmac where the plane was waiting for clearance to take off.
