The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Sunday Ehindero, said yesterday that investigation into the crashed Bellview flight 210 would be exhaustive, alleging that there was an explosion before the aircraft came down.

Ehindero, who made the disclosure at the scene of the crash during a visit there in company of the Ogun State Governor Gbenga Daniel and senior police officers, said intelligence report indicate that the ill-fated plane came down with all the 117 persons on board killed after an explosion.

Though Ehindero will not give further details, the police warned that those who have no business going near the crash site should keep off.

The police, which issued the warning through the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), 'B' Depart-ment (Operations), Mr. Mike Okiro, who was at the site much earlier, said the police have cordoned off the scene and would not tolerate any one, that has no business being there to come near until investigations into the crash was completed.

Okiro said rescue operation was over as it was obvious from the evidence at the site that there was nothing more to be salvaged, the passengers on board the aircraft, having all died.

Governor Gbenga Daniel on the other hand, who had cut short his visit to the United States, to race back to the country on hearing the twin tragedy of the death of the First Lady, Mrs. Stella Obasanjo, and the crash of the Bellview aircraft in the little village of Lisa, near Ifo, in Ifo Local Government Area of his State, was horrified by the terrifying sight at the scene.
Daniel had after inspecting the scene said I am not an aviation expert, but I think what happened must have happened mid air.

The Governor prayed for the repose of the souls of the victims.
