Lagos airport not under ‘Boko Haram’ attack – FAAN



The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said that the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos was not under any form of terrorists attacks.

FAAN’s spokesperson, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu said a video trending on social media suggesting the airport had come under attack was the handiwork of mischief makers.

She urged the international community to disregard such video as the airport is safe and activities going on smoothly.

She said the video in question was that of a simulation exercise carried out by Nigeria Air Force in conjunction with other aviation agencies about two years ago.

The statement reads: “FAAN will like to state unequivocally that MMIA is not under any kind of attack . The video in question is that of an old simulation carried out by Nigeria Air Force and others”.

“FAAN will like to advise those uploading such to desist from the act as it is not only malicious , wicked , embarrassing but also sending wrong signals to the world about the internal security of the federal republic of Nigeria.”
