The casket containing the remains of Chief Olusegun Agagu (former Governor of Ondo State and Aviation Minister) has been recovered from the crashed Akure bound plane. Our reporter confirmed that she saw the casket intact when it was brought from the aircraft this afternoon.
The black box (which has details of the flight and voice recordings) has also been recovered.
The Associated Airlines’ plane came down this morning shortly after its take off from Lagos airport (Murtala Mohammed International Airport’s domestic wing).
Speculations are rife about the identities of passengers, but we await the manifest and official confirmation.
