It’s been two weeks since the Dana Airline crash which claimed the lives of over 150 Nigerians. Reports have it that a preliminary report of the crash investigation by the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) has already been submitted to the Federal Government.
According to a source who spoke with The Guardian, the preliminary report was submitted last week; a more detailed interim report would be ready in three to six months; while the final report would be ready much later.
The source said: “The Dana Air aircraft crash preliminary report has been submitted to the government over a week ago. The preliminary report contained just some basic facts about the crash. The information therein is for government’s consumption. The report was not too detailed. It only gave facts of some things that happened to the ill-fated plane before the crash.
“The interim report, which is more detailed, will be submitted between three and six months, that is some time around September or December, depending on the pace the team investigating the accident can move. The final report will then come later after the interim report. That is the way the three reports will be submitted. The final report is expected to be ready in one year.”
