A plane conveying Nigerian citizens from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, has made a U-turn after a pregnant woman gave birth to a baby mid-air.

Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, disclosed this.

It was gathered that the airline left Dubai for Lagos at 10am but an hour into the about eight-hour trip, the woman gave birth, forcing the pilots to return the plane to Dubai to disembark the mother and the new born.

The plane, which was scheduled to arrive at 3pm is now expected to land at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at 7pm.
