A 72-year-old male passenger on Air Peace Calabar-Abuja Flight P47182 on Friday died on board, while the flight was airborne.

The spokesman of the airline, Stanley Olise, confirmed the unfortunate development Friday.

Reliable sources from the Margret Ekpo International Airport, Calabar disclosed that the deceased had a case of paraplegia due to spinal injury since 2019 and had been on medication and going for check up in Abuja.

He became severely sick while on board the flight and upon arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, Port Health officials checked him and confirmed that he had zero pulse, signifying he had passed on.

The deceased, who was escorted to the airport by his daughter, was certified fit to fly by the Port Health at the Calabar airport but could not make the journey alive.

When the flight landed at the Abuja airport, his remains was removed from the aircraft by officials of Port Health for other necessary protocols.

The incident was confirmed by the spokesman of Air Peace, Stanley Olise who said the deceased was certified fit to fly before embarking on the flight.
