Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau

The Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB), formerly the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), investigates aircraft accidents and incidents in Nigeria. It is headquartered on the grounds of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

The agency reports to the President of Nigeria through the Federal Minister of Aviation. In December 2023, Mr. Alex Badeh Jr. replaced Engr. Akin Olateru as Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer of the agency.

In September 2020 the Federal Executive Council approved the establishment of AIB Training School in Nigeria.


Previously the Ministry of Aviation Civil Aviation Department investigated aircraft accidents. In 1989, the Federal Civil Aviation Authority (FCAA) was formed, and the Civil Aviation Department of the MOA became the FCAA Department of Safety Services. During the same year the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), subordinate to the Ministry of Aviation, was established, and the FCAA no longer had accident investigation responsibilities. The name of the bureau was later changed to the Accident Investigation and Prevention Bureau. As part of the Civil Aviation Act of 2006, the AIB became an autonomous agency and renamed Accident Investigation Bureau.
