There was confusion at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, after two planes bumped on Wednesday.

An Airbus A330-243 possessed by Middle East Airlines with registration number OD-MEA, rode right into a Boeing 777 aircraft with registration number TC-LJC run by Turkish Airlines.

The Middle East airbus bumped into the Turkish cargo flight, which was positioned on the international airport apron, based on the Daily Sun.

The Turkish cargo airplane was said to be stationed on the tarmac when the MEA airbus which was taxiing hit into it.

The airplane needed to get off its passengers who have been already on board.

Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), had earlier in the week spoke concerning the efforts of the federal government towards the reopening of international flights across the country.

The Secretary, who also serving as the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on COVID-19, stated that dialogues are at present ongoing between PTF and the Aviation Ministry.

While the Nigerian government permitted the opening of local flights, the international flight was nonetheless prohibited.
