The spokesman of the Nigeria aviation agencies, Yakubu Datti, asked for more time to get details of the incident.
But another official, who asked not to be named because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, said the crashed plane belonged to Associated Airlines, and was just about to take off when the accident occurred.
