According to a report by Daily Post, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has confirmed the suspension of some officials for allegedly extorting a passenger at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos State.
Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, disclosed this in a statement in Lagos on Saturday.
Yakubu said the action was in line with management’s determination to rid the nation’s airport of corrupt officials.
She said the officials are staff of Aviation Security and Customer Service departments of the Authority and have been suspended.
She said the On Duty Card of their accomplice from the Nigeria Immigration Service had been withdrawn.
Yakubu said the action was taken to serve as a deterrent to other bad eggs in the system who are bent on tarnishing the image of the country.
