Airline passengers (including me) are stranded in Ilorin, Kwara State because the runway has remained blocked since an Air Peace aircraft landed at Ilorin at 10am on Friday, 23 July and its hind tyre burst into shreds.
The aircraft shook violently as it wobbled dangerously to a stop on the runway. Its passengers were safely evacuated later.
The aircraft was still blocking the runway as at 1pm Saturday 24 July effectively blocking Ilorin air passengers (including me) from the rest of the world for over 24 hours with no flights into or out of the airport.
It is shameful that FAAN and Air Peace have not been able to clear the runway in over 27 hours.
