Days ago, reports went viral that a mysterious flying object believed to be a US spy drone flew into the toilet of a house located at Awotan in Ido Local Government Area of Oyo State.
According to Nigerian Tribune, aviation sources said the spacecraft, suspected to be United States’ latest spying venture in Nigeria, with registration number TX 5803, inscribed on a black battery was a drone which must have taken off from NASA base in Texas in the US.
That the battery attached to the spacecraft powered it and enabled it to move around so that it could do the bidding of those who sent it.
The craft, which was said to have dropped down from the orbit, flew into a toilet in the house of Ashipa of Awotan, Chief Tajudeen Adetoro, a few minutes after his grandson, Afeez Adewale and daughter-in-law, Adikat, left the toilet where they had gone to ease themselves.
Chief Adetoro said the mysterious aircraft forced itself into his toilet through the roof making a deafening sound.
That it could have killed Afeez and his mother, if it had met them in the toilet.
But according to new reports today, a shocked Chairman of the Local Government Area where the ‘crash’ happened, Professor Olowofela described the media report as very unfortunate and misleading.
According to him:
What happened was that a man was playing with a toy with his son and the toy got lost only to be discovered by a neighbor and instead of searching for the owner of the toy, the neighbour kept it in his home for a week . And the next thing was to read on a newspaper that a spy object lost control and crashed into a resident’s home”, he said.
The owner of the kite- like object, Sunday Folayan, an Electronic engineer and the Vice President, Nigeria Internet Registration Association, also expressed shock at the reported crash.
Folayan ,who is also into orbit, is the owner of Skynet , a service provider company based in Ibadan, accompanied the Chairman, top local government officials, the police, SSS and other security men to recover the toy on Sunday.
Folayan who claimed to have produced many similar toys for his son in the past explained that he was playing with his son with the battery propelled toy when it got missing and all effort to retrieve it failed last week Sunday.
He gave a vivid description of the toy which he produced for his son:
“The weight of the toy is 0.8 kilogram with the shape of an i-pad . It cannot run more than 15 minutes . It is not solar panelled, but uses battery and a remote control.”
However, the residents of the sleepy community told Sunday Tribune that the object was not a toy due to the fearful noise it made and the way it flew about, adding that it could be an explosive.
When it flew out, we rushed after it and it was found hanging on the antennae of our neighbour…making a terrible noise and emitting heavy smoke,” Chief Adetoro narrated.
He said they ran for safety on hearing the loud bang made on the roof of their house only to discover that the object had entered the toilet hitting its wall in an attempt to exit.
