Following an uneventful cargo flight from Jeddah, crew completed the landing procedure on runway 04 at Abuja-Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport. For unknown reasons, aircraft did not stop on the remaining runway, overrun the displaced threshold, veered to the right and exited the runway. On a grassy area, aircraft collided with several parked building machines and trucks. The aircraft came to a halt but was severely damaged to both wings and engines number three and four. As well, the engine number two was sheared off and a fire erupted, quickly extinguished.
