Guards on duty at the Nigeria Air force  HQ NADC gate about  01:35hrs  on July 21, 2023, halted three cable thieves along the airport road by NADC perimeter  fence who were sighted digging the FAAN  underground armored cable with  the aid of a digger,  shovel  and cutlass.

One of the alleged thief 28 year old, a native of Adamawa State, Usman Musa sustained gunshot wounds. He was subsequently  arrested  and taken  to 661NAFH Ikeja.

According to a statement made available by Director Public Affairs & Consumer Protection, 

Abdullahi  Yakubu-Funtua, on sighting the guards,  the men tried to escape when one of the guards  opened  fire on them, aiming at the shoulder  of Usman  Musa. 

The statement read, “Usman Musa , 28years old, a native of Adamawa State, residing at Ijora sustained gunshot wounds. He was subsequently  arrested  and taken  to 661NAFH Ikeja.

” He is   presently  receiving  treatment  at General  Hospital  Oyingbo while his  other two  accomplices  escaped. 

“Usman Musa will be properly  interrogated  after he has stabilized.  

“FAAN  believes  that this incident could  be a relevant clue to unravelling  the theft of the Runway  Lighting  at the Murtala  Muhammed  International  Airport, Ikeja
