The management of Air Peace has confirmed report by the governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose that cows took over the Akure airport runway on Saturday.
The management speaking to Vanguard on phone said that flight P4 7002 from Lagos had to delay landing into Akure Airport today (Saturday) when the pilot-in-command sighted cows on the runway at about 12.15pm.
On being alerted by control tower, aviation security personnel of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN AVSEC) quickly intervened and cleared the runway. The flight was eventually cleared to land after about seven minutes. Our guests on board were all calm while the delay lasted. The aircraft departed for Lagos at about 1.06 with full escort from FAAN security personnel.

This is a terrorist attempt to sabotage safe landing of air plane. All the cows must be arrested and the owners charged to court.

Thank God any collision with vows on landing is averted. Could cause serious accident.
