An aircraft belonging to Jedidiah Air on Friday crashed into a fence at General Aviation Terminal (GAT), local wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.


The incident happened while the King Air 200 jet with registration number 5N-HIS, was reparking at the tarmac close to a facility used by Bristow Helicopters.


An eyewitness speaking to The Nation said the accident happened due to brake failure.


“The accident happened at the tarmac beside Bristow Helicopter Hanger 3.
