Ondo State Govt Denies Hiring Crashed Associated Airline Plane


Ondo State Government on Tuesday said it was not involved in the hiring of Associated Airline plane, which crashed in Lagos last Thursday while conveying the body of the late former Governor Olusegun Agagu to Akure.

The state also said that the airline was not on the list of airlines earlier listed and presented to the burial committee set up by the government to organise a befitting burial for the deceased.

These clarifications were contained in a statement to PUNCH by the Ondo State Commissioner for Information, Kayode Akinmade.

A spokesman for the Agagu family, Femi Agagu, had reportedly said in a statement on Monday that the family did not hire the crashed plane.

Akinmade said the clarification became necessary in order to correct erroneous representations in media reports.

So who did then?
