By George Hatcher

A Kabo Airlines Boeing 747 which carried 512 passengers from Kano to make an emergency landing in Sokoto sustained tire damage, deflated tires, and damaged instrument landing systems on landing at Sokoto.

The pilot who flew that plane and made the emergency landing has been suspended.

The Director-General of Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority made the suspension because the pilot failed to obey the air traffic controller’s directive to land on runway 08, but landed on a different runway.
