It was learned that the lady was going to London on a student visa and boarded Egypt Air on a connecting flight to London via Egypt Air MS777 the following day.
The source added that the corpse of the lady was dropped off in Cairo, the Egypt Capital, by the airline.
“The family said the Airline didn't inform them, but rather they got a message from the consular office in Cairo informing them of her death on board the flight. Please, they need to know what exactly happened and how to get her corpse back to Nigeria,” the source said.
The newspaper said Egypt Air has not responded to the development as of press time, but a source close to the airline said they were still awaiting information from Cairo on the incident.
