Generator at Nigerian airport stolen


Unidentified thieves have stolen a back-up generator at the international airport in Port Harcourt, southern Nigeria, less than a week after an Air France passenger jet crashed into a herd of cows that strayed into its tarmac, an official said yesterday.

LAGOS — Unidentified thieves have stolen a back-up generator at the international airport in Port Harcourt, southern Nigeria, less than a week after an Air France passenger jet crashed into a herd of cows that strayed into its tarmac, an official said yesterday.


“The generator has been stolen by unknown thieves. I have just received the report. The police are investigating it. The incident is unfortunate,” Adamu Abdullahi, spokesman for the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria said.

Last week Wednesday, an Air France jet arriving from Paris in the oil-city with 196 people on board ploughed into a herd of cattle that had strayed onto the tarmac, which is not fenced off from neighbouring villages. No-one was hurt in the accident.

The generator, owned by the state-run Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, mysteriously disappeared from the airport on Tuesday.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
