The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has deployed 10 additional hilux patrol vehicles to the airside of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, to improve the level of security surveillance.
This is coming on the heels of alleged frequent reports of attempted opening of the cargo hold of aircraft while holding on the runway of the domestic and international wing of the airports.
So far, there had been four incidents of reported attempt on aircraft at the airport by suspected thieves.
Spokesman for FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu said, the deployment of these vehicles was one of the measures being adopted by the Authority to enhance operational efficiency and also boost security procedures at the airport.
She said assured airport users and the general public that the the Authority would continue to upgrade its facilities, processes and procedures, in consonance with its core values of security, safety and comfort.
