The Nigerian government on Wednesday directed the management of Dana Airline to suspend its commercial operations over safety concerns. 

This directive was given by the Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo in connection with an incident that happened at Murtala Muhammad Airport, Lagos State on Tuesday.

Recall that SaharaReporters on Tuesday morning reported how a commercial aircraft belonging to Dana Air skidded off the runway at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos State.

A photograph of the aircraft obtained by SaharaReporters on Tuesday captured the moment after the aircraft moved out of the runway.

It was also gathered that although there was panic, the passengers were evacuated safely and no casualty was recorded from the incident.

This incident raised a lot of concerns as to the fitness of Dana Air aircraft for domestic commercial operations across the country.
