It was a plane of Dana Airlines and it crashed to a residential area of Lagos killing more than 150 persons as reported in The Australian dated the 4th of June 2012.
The plane belonged to Dana Airline and was on a scheduled flight from Abuja to Lagos and was carrying 153 passengers as informed by the head of Nigeria’s civil aviation – there are apparently no survivors.
The cockpit voice recorder has been retrieved from the wreckage and that would provide clues on the reasons of the crash.
The casualty on the ground is still not known – the plane had crashed into houses and buildings near the airport and heavy damages have been reported by eyewitnesses.
The location of the crash was a plot of land on which there stood a church, a printing shop and a two-storey residential building.
Goodluck Jonathan, the President of Nigeria, has declared three days of mourning for the dead and has also ordered an investigation into the accident.
