Imagine being on a private jet, ready to take off, when suddenly you hear a loud noise coming from the engine. That’s exactly what happened to Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State and his aides. They were lucky to escape a potential aircraft crash after the engine of the jet they were on was found to be faulty.
The jet in question is a Bombardier Global Express 6000, owned by Chief Adedeji Adeleke, a billionaire businessman and the father of music icon Davido. It was at the Murtala Mohammed Airport on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, that this terrifying incident took place.
According to a source close to Governor Adeleke, the jet had not even started taxiing when the engine made a loud sound. This was a clear sign that something was wrong. Thankfully, the pilot and the crew were quick to react and made sure everyone on board was safe.
When the engine failure was detected, the pilot immediately shut down the engine and aborted the takeoff. This decision was crucial in preventing a potential disaster. The passengers, including Governor Adeleke and his aides, were evacuated from the aircraft and taken to safety.
AIt’s important to remember that not all stories have a happy ending. In this case, Governor Adeleke and his aides were fortunate to have escaped unharmed. It serves as a reminder of the importance of safety measures and the expertise of pilots and crew members in handling emergencies.
