Toptech Engineering Limited has presented five Awards of Excellence to crew members of the indigenous carrier, Air Peace, for thwarting an attempt by one Eze Kelvin to steal a considerable amount of money belonging to its Managing Director, Engr Adedeji Adeniyi.
Spokesperson of the airline, Stanley Olisa, who revealed this to newsmen, said the incident occurred on a 7:40 am Accra-Lagos flight on July 17, adding that the crew who operated the flight, received the award in recognition of their outstanding customer service and extra-vigilance in ensuring the protection of items on-board, as well as customer safety.
According to Olisa, the awardees are Captain Otobo Ogheneochuko, Pilot-in-Command; First Officer Phina Uzama-Okpalaeke; Olufemi Basanya, Lead Crew; and Amira Nwagui, Cabin Executive, while a separate Award of Excellence was also bestowed on the airline.
The crew reportedly noticed Kelvin taking an envelope of money from Engr Adeniyi’s laptop bag in the overhead cabin.
“Aware of the former’s theft antecedents, our crew subtly questioned him about the ownership of the bag, which he claimed was his. But when Adeniyi returned from the lavatory, it was confirmed that the bag belongs to him. Adeniyi later disclosed that the envelope had a significant sum, which was still intact when Kelvin returned the envelope,” the airline stated.
Olisa added that the incident was immediately reported to the Airport Security Officials who are currently handling it, while Kelvin has been blacklisted from flying with Air Peace.
Earlier in June this year, the Air Peace crew had botched the trafficking of two babies by a couple.
