His death was confirmed by a Port Health official, who noted that the passenger had no pulse upon the plane’s arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

The deceased was reportedly escorted to the airport by his daughter, and cleared by Port Health officials at the Calabar airport to fly.

A top official at the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria confirmed the incident.

“You have to get the details from the aircraft. He did not die on the terminal, he died on the aircraft,” the official said refusing to give more details.

Also, Air Peace’s spokesman, Stanley Olisa, confirmed the incident to one of our correspondents on the telephone.

He said, “Yes, I can confirm it. He was certified fit to fly. He was a 72-year-old man. He was accompanied by his daughter. He was given medical clearance. It is not a COVID-19 related case. He was going to Abuja for a check-up. He was on medication. The aircraft was decontaminated immediately.”
