There was panic after a stowaway was captured trying to make himself into a plane moments before take-off.

The man was seen by passengers trying to climb onto the wing of the plane at the international airport in Lagos, Nigeria.

It remains unclear how the man, who has not been identified, reached the Azman Air plane or what his intentions were.

Nigerian aviation authorities say the intruder has since been detained and investigations are underway.

Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria spokeswoman Henrietta Yakubu says the Azman Air plane had been waiting for clearance from air traffic controllers when the incident happened.

This comes just days after a stowaway fell from a Kenya Airways plane as it came to land at London Heathrow Airport.

A student who was sunbathing survived after the stowaway fell inches from where he was.
