July 25, 2021

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has categorically denied any reported air accident  involving Air Peace or any other airlines, Mr Sam Adurogboye, the General Manager, Public Relations, NCAA, said in a statement in Lagos, on Saturday.

Adurogboye said that the attention of the authority had been drawn to a sensational report that was trending that an aircraft belonging to Air Peace B737-500, with registration mark 5N-BQR, was involved in an air crash in Ilorin, on July 23.

“As a matter of fact, the said aircraft, which departed from Abuja successfully, landed in Ilorin. It only experienced a tyre burst in the course of taxiing.

“Meanwhile, all the 66 passengers and six crew members onboard were disembarked without any issues whatsoever on the same day.

“The Authority wishes to enjoin the travelling public to disregard such false and reckless presentations,” he said.

Adurogboye urged the media to partner, inculcate professionalism and avoid publishing false news that was capable of injuring blossoming reputations.

He said the NCAA was committed to ensuring safe and secure air transport in Nigeria and would stop at nothing to ensure that its record of over eight years of zero accident and fatality, in scheduled flight operations, continued.

Alleged fraud: FG to arraign Dana Air MD, others on Oct. 13

June 30, 2021

The Federal Government will, on Oct. 13, arraign the Managing Director (MD), Dana Air, Hathiramani Jacky Ranesh, in a Federal High Court, Abuja on allegations bordering on fraud.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu fixed the date after counsel to the defendant, Ade Adedeji, SAN, told the court that the absence of his client in court was to the knowledge of the prosecution.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the arraignment of Ramesh and two others, in suit number CR/101/21, was in the cause list for Wednesday’s proceeding.
 
The MD of Dana Air is the first defendant in the suit.
Although other defendants in the matter were in the court, Ramesh was absent.
However, when the matter was called, counsel to the 1st defendant, Adedeji, said he was in court to represent Ramesh after they were served with the notice of arraignment. 
The lawyer said his client was not in the country.
 
He said counsel to the prosecution also knew that Ramesh would not be able to take his plea as a high court in Lagos State where the defendant was also facing a trial in another matter had adjourned as a result of the trip.
The senior lawyer stated that if his office had known that the matter was slated for today’s sitting, he would have politely declined to accept the service. 
“The charge before this honourable court is a serious matter. 
“We came in from Lagos just to come and explain to your lordship the circumstances that informed our acceptance of service without knowing that the date is coming so soon. 
“We didn’t know before we accepted it. We have an option not to accept this but as officer in the temple of justice, we felt we are under obligation to accept on his (Ramesh’s) behalf.
“But to the knowledge of counsel to the prosecution, the principal defendant is not in the country which was made known to the prosecution.
“It is on the basis of these circumstances that we shall be appealing to your lordship for an adjournment my lord to enable the defendant appear before this honourable court,” he said.
Counsel to the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation, Wilson Michelangelo, did not oppose the request for an adjournment.
Justice Egwuatu then fixed Oct. 13 for arraignment of the defendants.
