The aircraft crash in Iran that killed 176 people also claimed a Nigerian.
The man identified as Dauda Onoruoiza has been confirmed as one of the 176 dead victims of the Ukrainian airplane that was shot down by Iran.
It is believed that Dauda was working with American airplane manufacturers, Boeing before the sad incident occurred.
He was reportedly on a three months training with Boeing in Ukraine and was attached to the Boeing 737-800 aircraft to study its mechanical noise and report back to the company ahead of its maintenance scheduled on Monday January 13 in Ukraine.
Iran made the admission on Saturday days after denying having anything to do with the crash.
It, however, attributed the incident to human error while apologising to its citizens and families of the victims.
