FAAN’s JMTF Arrests Touts, Miscreants, Scavengers At JUHI Carnal In Lagos
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says the Joint Monitoring Task Force (JMTF) of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos yesterday mobilized and carried out a raid of the Joint Users Hydrant Installation (JUHI) Canal and the International Access Road Bridge at about 1638hrs.
A statement signed by Mrs. Obiageli Orah, FAAN’s Director of Public Affairs & Consumer Protection says the exercise yielded the arrest of five suspects. It further reads:
“It is lamentable to note the gradual transformation of the JUHI canal into a potential hideout for criminals. Shanties have been erected by miscreants in close proximity to NAHCO Bridge and the raid brought about the dismantling of these shanties by the JMTF and subsequent arrest of five miscreants.
These individuals have been handed over to the Aviation Security Crime Investigation and Intelligence Unit (CIIU) for further interrogation and necessary action.
FAAN is using this medium to warn the general public that any encroachment into the airport environment shall not be tolerated, and anyone who has no business at the airport should please stay away. The Authority shall deal with anyone caught carrying out any act of vandalism or touting at the airports.”
