By George Hatcher

On Oct 3, 2013, a twenty-three year old Associated Aviation Embraer EMB-120 was en route from Lagos to Akure to carry the deceased regional governor and family to his funeral in Akure.

The Embraer developed engine trouble on take-off. (The failed engine was a Pratt & Whitney.) The plane struck a wooded area, a wall and came to rest on fire, avoiding a residential area. The flight data recorder has been recovered.

The number of people aboard has not been determined. Some sources say the flight had 20 passengers plus a crew of seven; some sources say only twenty were aboard in all. Fifteen victims lost their lives initially, and one died in the hospital.

The four survivors were hospitalized.
