FAAN says reports of assault credited to Mrs. Amaechi are false

FEDERAL Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has dispelled a report making rounds that its staff was physically assaulted by the wife of the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Mrs Judith Amaechi at the Port a Harcourt Airport.

In a statement by the airport authority, “Our attention has been drawn to a trending story to the effect that the wife of the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Mrs Judith Amaechi supervised the assault and manhandling of some airport officials on the 26th May 2018, because she was refused boarding an Air Peace flight from Port Harcourt to Abuja.”

“The Authority will like to state emphatically that the incident has nothing to do with the Honourable Minister’s wife, it was between some security personnel at the airport and airline officials.”

An online medium had reported that Mrs. Judith Amaechi arrived late to board a flight and after being told that she and her entourage were late and tried to force the flight from taking off by barricading it while her armed aides beat up a ground staff at the airport.
