The MEA airbus, which had been boarding passengers since 12:00pm, had to disembark every passenger on board.

There had been numerous ground collision incidents at the Lagos Airport over the years due to limited space at the airside of the airport, as more activities and higher movement of aircraft traffic have surpassed the initial plan of the airport.
