The management of Quits Aviation has responded to allegations of engine tampering with the Bombardier Challenger 605 aircraft, owned by Deji Adeleke, the elder brother of Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke. The company emphatically denied any tampering with the aircraft’s engine and explained that the aircraft is under 24-hour security surveillance.

Recent reports had suggested that an aircraft carrying Governor Ademola Adeleke and his aides had a narrow escape from a crash. Concerns were raised that the engine of the aircraft might have been tampered with, possibly indicating sabotage.

In a statement released by Quits Aviation, the company emphasized its reputation as a credible aviation entity with a strong track record in Aircraft Management, Maintenance, Operations, and Handling services. They stated that the aircraft in question had been parked at their premises prior to the incident on September 4, 2023.

The management of Quits Aviation stated that the doors of the aircraft were opened for flight preparation activities at approximately 13:18, and the aircraft departed for its intended flight at around 15:20.
