The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has said the Kaduna International Airport will not be closed to flight operations, despite Saturday’s bandits attack on FAAN Staff Quarters.
Managing Director of FAAN, Captain Hamisu Yadudu, disclosed over the weekend at Murtala Muhammad Airport, MMA, Lagos, during the Oversight visit by the Senate Committee on Aviation to Lagos Airport and Aviation agencies.
This is just as Captain Fola Akinkuotu, Managing Director, Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, MAMA, revealed that almost 24 hours after kidnappers abducted the Agency’s Staff and five family members and three other persons at Kaduna Airport, their abductors were yet to make contact with the agency.
FAAN Managing Director, Captain Yadudu, while regretting the attack on it’s Staff Quarters, vowed that the various Security Agencies would not relent in their efforts at ensuring safety of humans and equipment at all the nation’s airports.
According to him, before the unfortunate attack occurred, the management had beefed up secure networks at all the nation’s airports.
He, however, said the current attack would not discourage it from clamping down on any heinous crimes anywhere within the sector.
