Passengers have accused Air Peace management of mishandling their personal belongings after three laptops, a smartphone and other vulnerable items went missing on a Lagos-Abuja bound flight.

The incident happened 7:00 pm on Lagos-Abuja air bound on Friday.

Passengers lament that the experience left many of them stranded upon their arrival at the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport.

One of the affected passenger, Lere Adams, who spoke with THE PUNCH stated that the event rendered many of the passengers uncomfortable with no concrete explanation from the airline.

He added that items belonging to a Briton and an Indian was also stolen.

He said, “I had my luggage with me; it was light hand luggage. As soon as I boarded, I put the luggage in the overhead cabinet. My phone battery was low, so I plugged it into a power bank in my bag and switched off the phone. When we landed in Abuja, I realised I could not locate my phone.”

“Then, I saw an Indian that was complaining about the same thing: that he could not find his wallet and his laptop that was in his bag, and suddenly there was also a White man who had a backpack that was on top of him with two laptops and as soon as he got to Abuja, he looked for laptops but could not find them.

“While we were talking about the incident, one of the officers came and asked who owned a bag. Lo and behold, it was his bag, but it was without his laptops. He was asking how he got the bag. The officer replied that the air hostess said they found it in the cabin and the foreigner said it was impossible and asked where the laptops that were inside were.”

“My phone plugged into a diary that has a power bank, three laptops, and a wallet”.

According to Lanre who said two laptops belonging to a Briton was allegedly stolen stated that the airline management has contacted their Lagos headquarters and is currently investigating the incident.

“I was told this morning that they have reached out to their Lagos headquarters. And they said they were currently working on it. But so far, they have not given a direction as to what the way is,” he stated.
