I will be in Nigeria for a few months at the end of the year, traveling all around the country working on a new story about the Nigerian tech scene. Driving around the country is an option, but becomes very difficult becasue of the road quality and sheer size of Nigeria.

So I'm thinking of flying. The country has a number of domestic airlines and airports all around the country, so logistically this is not a problem. However, I see many news stories documenting crashes and various other incidents. Does anyone have any information of how safe it is to fly in Nigeria? Mabye any experience travelling in the country?
