Arik Air continues investigation on dead stowaway.

Sky Watch Nigeria.

The circumstances surrounding the discovery of a mans body in the wheel well of Arik Airs Airbus A340-500 on Friday October 26 2012 is being investigated by the management.

The body which was discovered by engineers conducting a routine line maintenance check on the aircraft is still being identified as no form of identification was found on the body when it was discovered.

According to the spokesman of Ark Air, Mr Ola Adebanji: ''However, we were able to establish that the body had been in the wheel well for more than a day suggesting that the stowaway may have originated from Lagos"

Curiously, a bottle of medicine produced by a local pharmaceutical company was found on the body laying credence to the suggestion that the stowaway may have boarded the flight from Lagos. Also found on the body was a Bible which has an American flag drawn on the back cover. The body of the stowaway which has since been deposited in the morgue is awaiting autopsy''
