The airline insisted there was “no way” the door could have fallen off without a passenger making “a conscious effort” to open it.
But passengers said everyone on board had denied tampering with the aircraft
Dapo Sanwo, from Lagos, told the BBC: “The flight was noisy with vibrations from the floor panel. I noticed the emergency door latch was loose and dangling.
“When we landed and the plane was taxiing back to the park point, we heard a poof-like explosion, followed by a surge of breeze and noise. It was terrible.”
Flew Dana. Exit door was unstable throughout the flight. As we touched down it fell off. Scary stuff.
He added: “The cabin crew tried to say a passenger pulled the hatch which everyone denied. They also tried to get us to stop taking videos or pictures.”
Another passenger, Ola Brown, a doctor from Lagos, said the door was “was unstable throughout the flight”.
“As we touched down it fell off,” she added. “Scary stuff.”

In a statement, Dana Air said “categorically that this could never have happened without a conscious effort by a passenger" to open the door.
It added: “By design, the emergency exit door of our aircraft are plug-type backed by pressure, which ordinary cannot fall off without tampering or conscious effort to open by a crew member or passenger.
“When an aircraft is airborne, it is fully pressurised and there was no way the seat or door could have been ‘shaking’ as insinuated.”

It added the aircraft later made the return flight to Lagos.
