FAAN told those engaged in alleged illegitimate activity at the airports to desist

The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has declared that it has apprehended over 90 people at both Murtala Muhammed airport in Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport in Abuja for reported

“nefarious” activities.

This comprises of reported participation in fake Covid-19 test results, touting, public nuisance and arguing, and other behavior.

Those nabbed involved airport staff, FAAN told Nigerian media.

The arrests was as a result of many complaints by tourists who said airport staff have extracted them, mainly in the wake of the epidemic, as stated by Nigerian newspaper Punch News.

Diverging videos concerning the reported victims of badly behaving airport staff on social media were a shame to the country, the body had said in November 2021, as also stated by the same news source.

Eighty-nine of the 90 have been handed over to police, FAAN said in a statement posted to Facebook.
