The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has warned anyone who has no legitimate business at the airports to desist from approaching the airports.
This warning is coming on the recent raid and arrests of 21 persons found loitering and engaging in illegal activities at Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA Lagos.
In a statement, the Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua said, the raid carried out by the Joint Monitoring Task Force (JMTF) and the Aviation Security Crime Investigation & Intelligence led to the arrest of touts, illegal foreign exchange dealers, hawkers and scavengers within the landside, the carparks and the airport access roads.
