Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, reassured the public of his safety following a harrowing incident near the Ladoke Akintola Airport in Ibadan, Oyo State. His private aircraft, carrying the minister and some of his aides, crash-landed near the airport on Friday evening. A source close to the minister reported to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Adelabu was in good spirits and not perturbed by the incident.

An aide of the minister emphasized that it was a minor incident, and Adelabu took it in stride, as it did not result in any injuries to the passengers on board. The aircraft, en route from Abuja to Ibadan, landed approximately 50 meters short of the runway threshold and skidded into a ditch.

The Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB) swiftly initiated an investigation into the cause of the incident. NSIB, in a statement issued by its Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Dr. James Odaudu, confirmed that investigators were on-site, and further information would be provided once the investigation yielded results. Adelabu's composure and the ongoing investigation offer reassurance regarding the incident, ensuring that it receives the necessary scrutiny and attention.
