Uasin Gishu Police Commander Johnstonne Ipara says all the passengers and crew were evacuated safely from the aircraft immediately it landed at the airport.

One of the left tires dropped off soon after the plane took off from the Lodwar Airstrip and emergency services were immediately activated in Eldoret for the landing.

Ipara said relevant authorities had launched investigations into the incident.
