Lagos: Nigerian aviation authorities say an intruder who climbed onto the wing of a commercial plane that was preparing to fly from the country’s busiest airport has been detained.

A viral video of Friday’s incident at the international airport in Lagos also showed panicked passengers who appeared eager to flee the plane.
