FAAN Issues Urgent Appeal Amidst Airport Security Crisis: Public Warned Against Illegal Incursions and Theft


In a critical update from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) regarding Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, the public is urged to refrain from illegal incursions through the perimeter fence.

FAAN’s Director of Public Affairs, Mrs. Obiageli Orah, has emphasized the severe consequences of such actions, not only compromising security but potentially leading to prosecution or harm, including the risk of being shot.

This urgent appeal follows a concerning rise in incursions and recent theft of essential runway lighting, posing serious threats to airport safety and security.

Mrs. Orah revealed the significant financial burden on FAAN due to the need for replacing damaged or stolen critical facilities, urging individuals without legitimate business at the airport to stay away.

She warned of imminent dismantling of unauthorized structures and announced the promise of arrest and prosecution for those found loitering or touting within the airport vicinity.

The Joint Military Task Force (JMTF) has escalated operations, resulting in numerous recent arrests to address the heightened security concerns.

To enhance the overall airport experience, users are advised to utilize designated parking areas and avoid parking at drop-off zones to prevent towing.

FAAN reassures its commitment to providing quality service and earnestly pleads for public cooperation to ensure the continued safety and security of the airport environment. Stay tuned for further updates.
