By Simon Farnsworth

At least  150 people have died after a passenger jet crashed into a busy suburb of Lagos, Nigeria.

The Dana Air Boeing MD-83 crashed into a printing works and residential buildings in the Agege area of the capital before bursting into flames killing all 150 onboard.

Government officials have stated that further casualties among residents of Agege are highly likely.

Aviation Minister Stella Oduah said the pilot radioed the Lagos control tower when the plane was 11 nautical miles away from the runway saying the plane had engine trouble.

“A minute later, the aircraft disappeared from the air traffic control radar,” Ms Oduah told said a press conference at Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority headquarters in Lagos.

“Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the passengers and the people on the ground who lost their lives in this tragedy,” the minister said.

President Goodluck Jonathan later declared three days of national mourning.
