Arik Air kicks as Uche Elendu claims its plane crash-landed

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Elendu had claimed that the aircraft crash-landed in a “remote area” while they were 10 minutes away from Asaba in Delta state.

The film star also alleged that that incident was caused by the failure of the aircraft’s gear, adding that the pilot had to reverse back to Lagos.

Elendu also called out the airline in several other posts, alleging that its staff did not apologise to those aboard the plane in spite of the incident.
