A seasoned journalist, Ms. Moji Danisa, has released names of some of the alleged victims of this morning’s plane crash in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos.

Writing in her blog, http://mojidanisa2.com, Ms Danisa said: “Unconfirmed reports just reaching me say that the ill-fated Akure bound aircraft which crashed in Lagos this morning was carrying late Gov Agagu’s corpse to Akure. My source who was one of the dignataries waiting to receive the corpse at the Akure airport also reveals that Agagu’s only son, his wife, Chief Olu Falaye’s first son, Deji Falaye, are among the casualties.”

Dr. Olusegun Agagu, a former gvernor of Ondo State, died on September 13 and is scheduled to be buried this weekend.

About 20 passengers are believed to have been in the Embraer aircraft reportedly owned and operated by Associated Airlines, which crashed around Concord Road shortly after taking off from the local wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja.

Mr. Nasir Ramon Olanrewaju, a senior communications manager with the United Bank for Africa (UBA), witnessed the sad incident. He wrote about an hour ago on his Facebook wall:

“Just witnessed a plane crashed at the airport. I was at a private hangar waiting for la flight to Ghana. The plane, an Embraer, I was told, was taking off, and plunged to a building, close to Tank Farm at the airport, close to toll gate. SAD! Not again!!”

Emergency services have moved to the site of the crash but Nigeria’s aviation authorities are yet to react to the accident.
