Edo Government Secures Admission For Stowaway Boy In The State's Top Boarding School

The Edo State Government has secured admission in one of the state’s top secondary schools for 13-year-old Daniel Oikhena, who stowed away in the wheel of an Arik Aircraft from Benin to Lagos on Saturday August 24, 2013.
The state Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, disclosed this when the Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Mr George Uriesi, led FAAN management team on a visit at the Government House, Benin City, yesterday.
According to the governor, “without meaning to encourage anyone else, we decided to support him by sending him to one of the top secondary schools in Edo State owned by the government. The reason for opting for a boarding school is that we think there’s need to closely watch him, something his parents could not do.
“He is an intelligent young man with uncommon challenges, but one who has a vision. We had him examined by people who should know and the result confirmed that he is normal”, Oshiomhole noted.
“This incident was probably the kind of trigger we needed to improve facilities at our Airports. You are never going to have all the money you need to do all you have to do.  You should start from somewhere”, he noted.
Earlier, Uriesi said they were in Benin City for ground assessment of the stowaway incident which has forced FAAN to review and improve on its security arrangements.
