Shortly after takeoff, the plane “struck a flock of gulls,” according to an official from the Federal Air Transport Agency, TASS reported.

“Some of the birds were sucked into its engines,” he added.

A very heavy security presence has been noticed at the Gani Fawehinmi, Freedom Park in Ojota, Lagos State Tuesday morning, ostensibly to thwart any possible protest by the leaders of the #FreedomNow movement.

The activists had issued a statement indicating that they would be holding g a protest rally at the park, which was the epicenter of the massive protest against former President Godluck Jonathan ‘s decision to increase the pump price of petrol some years ago.

However, as at the time of posting this report, protesters were yet to arrive.

Only 24 hours earlier an attempt by the #RevolutionNow movement to hold rallies across the country to protest poor governance was prevented by the police.

Many of the protestors were arrested in Lagos, Oshogbo and a number of other cities as the police often used heavy hand tactics to stop it.

One of the arrowhead of the campaign, Omoyele Sowore, who is the publisher of online news medium, Sahara Reporters, was picked up in the wee hours of Saturday by Department of State Services (DSS) operatives from his house in Lagos.

The DSS later explained their action on the ground that they could not allow anyway threaten the peace and security of the nation.

The police also said Sowore’s action was treasonable felony.

Report: Sowore flown to Abuja

Sahara Reporters is reporting that their publisher, Omoyele Sowore has been moved to Abuja.

The online news portal broke the news on Sunday morning in a “flash” post on their site.

Sowore was arrested in the early hours of Saturday, by armed security operatives, believed to be from the Department of State Services (DSS).

The activist had been making claims of leading a “revolution” against “bad governance”, which was to kick off on Monday.

However, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Mohammed Adamu, had on Saturday described as “treasonable felony and an act of terrorism” calls for revolution against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

In a statement, the police boss vowed to deal decisively against anyone or group that tries to.

According to the police chief, the objective of the protest, was to force a regime change, hence the determination of the force to assert its will, in the interest of the state.

Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba, who conveyed the IGP’s warning in a statement yesterday, said the Force will not watch idly, while acts of “terrorism” were being plotted.
