Dana plane crash site
The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) has said that a survey conducted around the site of the Dana airplane crash has shown that six people are likely to have been killed apart from the passengers on board the plane.
The plane crash had killed 153 passengers on Sunday, out of which 149 bodies have been recovered..
Reuters reported that the agency said distinguishing the passengers from any other victims has proved difficult, adding that some are bodies burnt beyond recognition, and a number of dismembered body parts have also been found.
Only two bodies -- those of a woman clutching her child -- have been established to have been casualties on the ground.
The General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Oke Osanyintolu said Wednesday that a survey of the building and the surrounding houses showed that all except six of the occupants were accounted for.
"Six people were missing among the occupants of the building ... five were injured and taken to hospital," he said, adding that this meant the death total might not exceed 159, though the final figure was not yet confirmed.
Dana Airline which licence has been suspended maintained that there was nothing wrong with the plane before it crashed.
