Boy found under Arik plane tyre hole thought he was going to the US

The 14 year old boy who beat airline and airport security at Benin airport on Saturday August 24th and flew in the tyre hole of a Lagos-bound Arik plane actually thought he was on his way to the US.

Sources at Benin Airport said Daniel Ikehina ran away from home because he was being maltreated and was trying to escape from his parents when he joined the Arik flight. Unfortunately for him the plane wasn't flying to the US, it was flying to Lagos where the stowaway was immediately arrested as he alighted from the wheel well of the aircraft. Daniel is presently in the custody of the State Security Service (SSS) who are trying to unravel how he managed to pull off such a stunt.

Just look at how the boy is being handles by the security men, a minor for that matter. Instead of them to question themselves on how competent they are, that a minor could beat their security.

LOL! I praise his Yankee dreams! How he survived the pressurised nature of that compartment in the plane still marvels me. Naija!!

Mich said...

First off,how did he conceive the idea of sneaking into a plane and for how long did he incubate the thought to such perfection?
Secondly,one cannot even blame the poor lad...he's heard so much of the US and probably thinks its all rosy here hence,his decision to 'board' a plane.
In all,there's need for Nigeria to get better ASAP...only God knows what the next kid is planning;swimming across oceans perhaps.

Instead of maltreating the boy, they should train him so he can work for the sss later. The boy apparently has more sense and tact than all of them put together. Cos of they release him, boko haram go just give the Naija Scofield work asap. A word is enough for the wise.
