A commercial plane has crashed in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos, shortly after take-off. The Embraer aircraft reportedly owned and operated by Associated Airlines crashed about an hour ago, shortly after taking off from the local wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja.

An eyewitness, Mr. Nasir Ramon Olanrewaju, a senior communications manager working at the headquarters of United Bank for Africa (UBA), said minutes 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!!”

Nigeria’s aviation authorities are yet to react to the accident.
