Nigeria Airways - its a crate way to travel

Stansted was the scene of an interesting political incident in 1984 when Umaru Dikko, a Nigerian politician, was kidnapped in London. He was located at the airport in a crate together with a medic having been drugged just before being loaded on to a Nigerian Airlines 707. Needless to say diplomatic relations between UK and Nigeria were a tad strained in the next couple of years. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obi...-obituary.html
