A Nigerian man, Peter Onuka, who survived a plane crash in 2006, has paid tribute to the victims and their families.
A Boeing 737 operated by defunct ADC Airline, with 100 passengers and five crew members, crashed shortly after taking off from the Nnamdi Azikwe airport, Abuja, enroute Sokoto from Lagos.
At least 96 people died in the crash, with Onuka being one of the few passengers who survived.
Thanking God in a Facebook post for sparing his life in the horrific incident, he revealed that he came out of the wreckage of the plane without serious injuries.
He wrote: “He Exactly 14 years today, I was involved in a plane crash. The plane, a Boeing 737 operated by ADC Airline, was on a passenger flight from Lagos to Sokoto, via Abuja.
