It took the intervention of the armed security personnel to control the crowd who were already threatening to beat up officials of Dana Airline for delaying the release of the manifest.
When Vanguard spoke with Professor Peter Okebukola, immediate past Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, NUC, at the airport, who was scheduled to travel on the same crashed aircraft to Abuja confirmed that NUC lost four staff to the crash.
