There were rumors of a plane crash in Oworonsoki lagoon in Lagos state today. Well, this is not true as NEMA has released a statement saying it was only conducting an air crash simulation exercise in the area.
According to NEMA, the exercise was to test run the level of preparedness and response abilities of responding agencies in case of actual distress alert/incident in a difficult terrain.
The exercise involved deployment of four helicopters from Nigerian Navy, Air force along with response boats from Navy, NIMASA and NIWA.
This included employing fire fighting preparedness of Navy fire boat, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Army, Air Force, Police, NSCDC, DSS, FRSC, Immigration, Customs, NAMA and other agencies at the state level which included LASEMA, State Fire service, LASTMA, etc. More photos below:
