The pilot of the plane, which had 73 passengers on board, had to make a return mid-air when he heard a loud bang at the engine side of the aircraft. There was immediate loss of thrust on the same engine and as a precautionary measure the pilot made a return.It reportedly swerved left and right for a few minutes before the pilot was able to control it and make a detour.

The plane landed safely with one engine and the passengers were thereafter transferred to another of the airline’s aircraft, a Boeing 737-80 series and flown to Abuja safely.
