Ola Adebanji who is Arik’s spokesman confirmed the incident, saying the passenger boarded the flight from Owerri in company of a relative.

“He started showing signs of uneasiness midway into the flight. The body has been deposited in the mortuary by the police while investigation into the immediate cause of death is ongoing”, the statement said.
