According to the airline, some members of the public are sharing video and photos of its ill-fated Flight 992 that crashed on June 3 2012 claiming 163 lives and are parading the media content as a recent incident.
Dana Air spokesman Kingsley Ezenwa said in a statement,
"We wish to state unequivocally that the report was entirely false and malicious, as it carried the pictures and video footage of a previous occurrence.
"At Dana, the safety of our passengers and crew is our major priority and we would continue to adhere strictly to all local and international regulations in the delivery of safe, reliable and world-class air transport.
"We also regret any inconveniences that the alleged crash may have caused our passengers and assure them that the matter is being investigated."
