Thousands of people thronged around the location of the wreckage of black smoke on the outskirts of Agege, Lagos. Witnesses said they saw the plane hit a building and burst into flames. Some people are stunned, while others took pictures with their camera phones at the crash site, in a region where the tin-roofed houses lined the road looks muddy.
