Ibom Air General Manager, Marketing and Communication, Aniekan Essienette, in a statement made available to newsmen said:

In accordance with company procedure, rather than taking the full distance to the domestic terminal, the crew opted to turn off into the international cargo tarmac from where stairs and buses were positioned to disembark the passengers and take them to the domestic arrival hall.

“All 128 passengers on board were safely disembarked and transported to the arrival hall at MMA2, while our Engineers work on the fault.

“This statement is given to clear any ambiguity while expressing our regrets to our passengers for the inconvenience.”
