Tight security measures have been put in place in and around all Airports in the country in order to forestall any possible attack at the nation’s airports, even as the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria , FAAN, has maintained that there were no security threats during the Christmas celebration.

Reports say there was unusual security surveillance on all roads leading in and out of the  Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

Speaking to newsmen, the General Manager (Corporate Communications) of the FAAN, Mr. Yakubu Dati, said:

“The Federal Government, in its determination to ensure hitch-free holidays, has put all these measures in place at strategic locations, including airports, all over the country to forestall any form of security breach during this period.

“We consider this a positive step designed to complement FAAN’s effort at ensuring maximum safety and security of lives and properties at all our airports.
“The authority, therefore, encourages all passengers to leave their homes early so that the delays caused by these security checks will not hamper their pre-boarding formalities at the airport, especially in view of the expected increase in passenger movements, both on local and international flights during this festive period.”

Army spokesman, Bridadier General Mobolaji Koleoso, has also added that all security agencies have been put on 24-hour surveillance.
