A Boeing 777-360ER converted cargo plane operated by Ethiopian Airlines skidded off the taxiway after landing at Lagos-Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS), in Nigeria.

The aircraft, registered ET-ASL, had just operated cargo flight ET3905 from Addis Ababa-Bole Airport (ADD) in Ethiopia. As it was taxiing to the apron, the plane skidded off the taxiway and its left-hand main landing gear sunk in the mud.

Three hours after the incident, after the tire was freed from the mud, the aircraft was eventually towed away from the taxiway. No damage or injuries were reported. After unloading its cargo, the aircraft flew back to Addis Ababa.
