Air Peace passengers who raised safety concerns charged to court for unruly behaviour

At least three passengers abroad an Air Peace 6:30 p.m. flight to Abuja from Lagos on Monday were arrested and charged to court for alleged unruly behaviour and for obstructing the operations of the airline.

One of the arrested passengers, Oluwaseun Akinfolarin, told  Premium Times that trouble started after he pointed out to one of the hostesses on the flight during the routine safety drill that seats were blocking the aeroplane’s emergency exits.

“I told her that there was an obstruction on the emergency exits. Please explain why do we have seats there. She couldn’t give us an answer. When her colleague came, she shoved her aside and told her she should not bother explaining anything to us. Then there was an uproar among the passengers.”

He explained that the air hostess went in to inform the pilot of the aeroplane that passengers were being unruly. Subsequently, the pilot announced he was no longer going to fly.

Later the chairman of the airline, Allen Onyema arrived and insisted that the flight was cancelled and the passengers were ordered to disembark.

Mr. Akinfolarin and two others were then arrested and taken to a police station in the Ikeja area of Lagos. They were later granted bail and told to report the next morning, Tuesday.
