Global Peace Movement International UK has described reports making rounds of a crashed Air Peace aircraft in Ilorin, Kwara State as act of wickedness and jealousy.
President General, Global Peace Movement International UK, Dr Mike Uyi stated this in London on Sunday stressing that the group will resist any move by some elements in Nigeria whose job is to destroy people’s character and investments.
“I want to emphatically say that no Airpeace aircraft crashed nor crash landed in Ilorin or in any place for that matter. This is pure wickedness and was intended to cause panic in the minds of the flying public”.
“The bound B737-500 aircraft with registration number 5N-BQR from Abuja landed safely but had a minimal tyre burst while taxing which can happen in any part of the world”
“If not for bad wishes, how does a tyre burst become air crash?. Aviation industry is not motor carage struggles. We are warning whoever is behind this misleading news against Air Peace to be very careful”.
According to Uyi, “It is a fact that, Allen Onyema’s Air peace started operations a few years ago and had grown in leaps and bounds. His meteoric rise in the aviation business is a thing many Nigerians are happy about as he continues to score many firsts we are also sure some persons are not also happy”
“We at Global Peace Movement International with representatives in 52 countries of the world will continue to stand with Air Peace and it’s entire management to resist all mischief-makers who are bent on dragging the good works of the airline which have employed hundreds and thousands of Nigerians”
“Global Peace Movement International has activated it’s investigative team and will stop at nothing in taking legal actions against those who malign Air Peace, it’s management and operations”
He said, Air Peace has over the years built a reputation of integrity and will not fold their hands to see a wicked minded reports to tarnish that good reputation.
The Nigeria Accident Investigation Bureau, AIB-N, Saturday confirmed that an Air Peace aircraft with registration number 5N-BQR only had a minor tyre burst incident at Ilorin airport on Friday.
