FAAN flays Sokoto Airport runway invasion

THE Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has condemned in absolute terms, the invasion of the runway of Sultan Abubakar III International Airport, Sokoto by loyalists of some politicians who broke through the airport fence and invaded the airport in a bid to receive their political masters.

The unfortunate incident, which  occurred on Friday August 3, 2018, is a gross violation of the security and safety arrangements at the airport, as thousands of political loyalists violently accessed restricted areas at the airport, breaking down the airport fence in the process and resisting all security machineries in place.
However, our team of aviation security officers were able to curtail the situation and normalcy was restored at the airport.
The airport environment is a highly regulated environment and should be seen as such.
As the 2019 general elections is drawing closer, the Authority will like to advise the general public, especially politicians and their supporters to ensure compliance with all rules and regulations at the airports, as we will not compromise security and safety at our airports for any reason.
