The plane took off from Juba to Wau with 50 passengers on board including the Western Bahr el Ghazal state SPLM secretary Mr. Paulino Adam Naro.
“I just found myself outside on the runway grounds with others who were seated next to me in plane. I don’t know what really happened when the plane attempted to land,” a terrified Adam told Gurtong.
“God is great that we all survived such an accident,” he said.
There were no casualties reported but the plane’s captain only know as Nikola is currently admitted at Wau Teaching Hospital due to injuries sustained according to a WBGS press official Mr. Justin Saled.
Saled said that according the security sources at the airport, the pilot was directed not to land there due to the ongoing constructions.
