A stowaway had a lucky escape at Lagos (Nigeria) last week (27/12/2019). He was running towards the landing gear of an Air Peace 737, about to take off for a domestic flight from Lagos to Owerri, when he was spotted by the pilot of a private jet. Tower then sent airport security to the man, and he was arrested (but by now, he's probably thankfull for that).
(the tweet down below mention "Multara Airport (Afghanistan)", but the aircraft registration matches Air Peace's flight Lagos-Owerri - see press release).

Aircraft involved: this EuroAtlantic 737-800:
