Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has tightened security measures in and around the nations airports after Tuesday’s attack on Brussels Airport and its subways system by a terrorist group that killed at least 31 people and 270 others reported injured..
According to the General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr Yakubu Dati, he reported, that in a working alliance with Nigerian Police, sniffer dogs have been deployed to all major airports to avoid the same Brussels incident in the country.
The General Manager disclosed that nothing would be left undone to ensure maximum security around the nation’s airports, especially during this Easter celebration.
He expressed shocked over the dastardly act carried out at the Brussels airport, while advising those without business at the airport not to constitute nuisance because a special task force from the Independent Corrupt Practices would be on ground to arrest touts.
All Body scanners and Close Circuit Television gadgets are operational and peoples’ activities at the airports would be closely monitored.
He appealed to air travelers not to leave their luggage(s) behind as such item would be taken away and destroyed.
The FAAN spokesman stated that the expansion and modernization of all the airports terminals in the country now provide better environment for passenger facilitation and commercial offerings.
However, he concluded by urging travelers to leave early on their travel dates, in order to complete their boarding facilities in good time.
