Dikko To Probe FAAN, Customs Crisis

In a bid to prevent another fracas in future between officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the officials of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), the Comptroller General of NCS, Dikko Inde Abdullahi is to investigate thoroughly the involvement of Customs officers.

The decision to investigate the cause of the crisis followed the beating of eight officials of FAAN by personnel from the Department of Customs and Excise stationed at the Hajj and Cargo Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos, leading to serious injuries to these officials.

The General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr Yakubu Dati, had said that the NCS personnel attempted to gain entry into the air side of the airport without any form of identification, in breach of security regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and were prevented from doing so by Aviation Security officials.
