FAAN suspends Four officers after Lagos Airport security breach

Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has suspended indefinitely, four aviation security unit heads who were on duty when an unidentified man climbed an Azman aircraft at Lagos airport on Friday morning.

FAAN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, confirmed the development in a statement.

“The affected officers are the Airport Chief of Security, Mamman Mohammed Sadiku and International Terminal Security Officer, Oni Abiodun.

“Others are the Head of Department Domestic Terminal 2, Kenneth Okezie and Head of Department Domestic Terminal 1, Adebowale Ayodele,” she said.

Yakubu said in the interim, one of its General Managers, Dr Anne Enyinnaya-Egbadon, had been detailed to take charge of security at the airport.

Passengers aboard a Port Harcourt-bound Azman Air flight were thrown into panic on Friday when a man climbed the aircraft while it was about to take off at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja.

According to a viral video shot by one of the passengers in Lagos, the man illegally gained access to the airside with a hand luggage.
