However, a combined team of anti-banditry military personnel and Crime investigation unit of FAAN Aviation Security Department swiftly intervened for rescue operation,with one casualty reported in the incident. 

In addition, She says, heavy reinforcement team from the Nigerian Defence Academy is on ground to ensure safety and security of airport workers/users.

The FAAN AVSEC Department has equally released operational vehicles to the team for patrol purposes.

While the Authority sympathises with the family and friends of the victim of the unfortunate incident, it pledges to continue to give further updates where necessary.

It will be recalled that, yesterday’s attacked not only led to commotion at the airport, a staff of NAMA who guards NAVIDS at the airport was killed by the bandits.
