A Dana Air McDonnell Douglas MD-83, registration 5N-JOY performing flight 9J-344 from Port Harcourt to Lagos (Nigeria) with 50 passengers, was accelerating for takeoff at about 21:00L (20:00Z) when the crew rejected takeoff. The aircraft taxied back to the apron, already on the apron brakes were observed on fire. The aircraft stopped on the apron, the passengers disembarked via stairs while the brake fire was being extinguished by ground staff.

The airline stated: "Our aircraft with registration number 5N-JOY operating flight 9J 344 from Port Harcourt to Lagos on 2nd of May 2022, was set to take off when the pilot in command noticed an anomaly which he queried with Air Traffic Control before embarking on a ramp return in line with our strict safety operating procedures. However, the impact on the brakes as result of the aborted take off affected the aircraft tyres which sparked off while the aircraft was taxiing back to base."
