NIGERIA: FAAN Probes Evacuation Racket at Abuja Airport

Following  the allegations leveled against airport staffers, that they collect fees from arriving passengers/ intending passengers under the guise of evacuation flights. The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), on Monday, said it had begun a probe into the allegations to unravel the alleged accusations laid against some of its staffers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja.
Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs FAAN, said the Authority was not unaware of the allegation, and had begun moves to unravel the claims.

Yakubu, used the medium to inform the general public to be aware that FAAN offers no fee-for-service at the airports, and travellers should not in any way give money to airport officials, but report any official, from any agency that requests money under any guise, including COVID-19 tests and screening.

“The Authority will like to inform passengers and other airport users that there is no aspect of its services at the airports that is being paid for by cash.

“Arriving passengers are expected to have gone through the COVID-19 test before boarding their flights from ports of departure, therefore they should not pay any money whatsoever to any airport official for the purpose.

“All COVID-19 measures put in place at the airports are free for passengers and do not attract any charges,” Yakubu said.
