There were also fears that the crash might have killed others on ground.

Eyewitnesses said the plane struck a two-storey building and burst into flames some thirty minutes later.
The crash drew a crowd of hundreds of of onlookers, forcing the authorities to close adjoining roads to the Toyin Street, Alagbado crash site.The Post understands that rescuers pulled at least one body from the rubble and were searching for survivors, AP news agency said.
Plane wreckage was visible all over the crash site, with the body of the plane lodged into the apartment building.
