The dead body of an unidentified man was found in the landing gear compartment of a plane that arrived in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport from Lagos, Nigeria on Monday.
According to the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, a tweet via its Twitter account said the dead body was found by the airport technical staff.
However, an investigation of the man’s identity and the cause of his death has begun.
“We are investigating the discovery of a body in the landing gear of an airplane that arrived from Lagos, Nigeria.
“The victim is a stowaway and was killed by the low temperatures during the flight.
“The Schiphol airport police unit and forensic investigators are working on establishing the person’s identity and cause of death,” the tweet said.
Recall that the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Lagos Seaport Command, on Saturday arrested five stowaways aboard a vessel en route Las Palmas, Spain.
Sunday James, the NIS spokesman, said that the report was made by the master of the vessel about 156 nautical miles off Lagos shoreline.
