The Federal Government Tuesday suspended the operating licence of Dana air. This, according to the order was to allow for investigation on the air crash involving one of its planes. A Lagos bound aircraft from Abuja belonging to Dana airline crashed into some buildings on Sunday in Iju area of Lagos killing 153 people on board and 30 others on ground.

The Nigerian Senate earlier on Tuesday at its plenary session ordered the withdrawal of the licence of Dana air pending the conclusion of the investigation into the crash. The Senate also asked the Director General of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Harold Demuren, to go on compulsory leave to allow investigations to be carried out on the activities of the Agency.

It was said that the aircraft had developed faults and was not expected to fly. She added that the same aircraft  had emergency landing on the 10th and 28th of May from Uyo to Lagos and Port harcourt to Lagos; 3pm -5.10pm and 4.30pm -7pm respectively.
