Summary No major (accident contributing) issues with Air Traffic Control were identified. The Airspace Manager at the Lagos airport in his report confirmed that everything about the flight went well until 1542:10hrs when the crew declared emergency. The Radar was the last contact the aircraft made before the fatal crash. The Radar Control should have stayed with the aircraft rather than transferring it to Lagos Tower. Radar vector would have been ideal and most appropriate at this time.
