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.”
