Nollywood actor, Imeh Bishop almost thought he was experiencing his last days on earth while aboard an Arik Air flight to Uyo when the plane developed a mechanical fault and they had to return to Lagos to make an emergency landing as the engines were overheating.
The course of this short ordeal threatened his life as he thought the unimaginable was about to take place especially in a period where Nigeria has experience several incidences of plane crashes.
He was angered by the fact that there was no official apology or explanation by the Arik Air management as regards the scary incident. This prompted him to vent his anger on Arik through his Instagram page.
Read what he wrote:
was aboard an Arik flight from Lagos to Uyo scheduled originally for 7am and rescheduled for 11am today. We were told over 35 mins mid air that the engines are over heated and we were left with no choice but to return to Lagos. I was scared, livid, frustrated yet grateful to God for a safe landing even though it was a near crash experience. Till now no arik staff has come to us to enquire as to what the case was and to proffer a possible way forward. Now that really sucks! A fragment of thought that could point to my crashing and leaving behind my sweet wife and beautiful daughter will for a long time make me say #thunderfirearik.”
