The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says it nabbed and suspended some officials for allegedly extorting a passenger at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The sanction was announced in a statement released on the agency’s Facebook page today.

The statement, which was signed by Henrietta Yakubu, general manager, corporate affairs of FAAN, revealed the officials are staff members of the aviation security and customer service departments of the authority, and they have been dealt with accordingly.

She also added that the on-duty cards of their accomplice from the Nigerian Immigration Service have also been immediately withdrawn.

Yakubu said the action “is in line with the management’s determination to rid the nation’s airport of corrupt officials.” She concluded that the development will “serve as a deterrent to other bad eggs in the system that is bent on tarnishing the image of the nation”.
