Duration: 30 sec.         Strange craft crashed into beach in Lagos, Nigeria.

I do not know if a case of this event had been reported earlier before, and I want to state clearly here that I’m reporting what an elderly man and a boy reported to our national television (NTA). According to the man, it happened about the time reported above. He was cooling it off at a beach resort when a circular-shaped craft flew over him and crashed into the beach. He reported the case to the aviation authority in my country (Nigeria). The way they took the issue with him, it was as if the poor man was a psycho! That got him very angry, because he was a very credible civil servant. Another lil' [slang word for little] kid peddling spring water around the beach resort also corroborated the first witness's report but was brush [sic – brushed] aside as infantile hallucination. The site [at] which the craft was purported to have crash[ed] was later searched by some divers and they claimed to have seen nothing. The whole scene remind[s] me of what happened in a book I had earlier read: The Doomsday Conspiracy.        

((NUFORC Note: We cannot confirm that the report was submitted from Nigeria, or from outside the United States. The e-address appears to be a domestic U. S. address, but we may err on that point. PD))
