He added that the fire might have been caused by an underground cable that needed replacement.

Another passenger, Mr Mayowa Olawale, said he was not happy with the officials of FAAN as they failed to address the passengers on the situation.

"We are just stranded here outside the arrival hall. This is unfair because as we speak no official information has been communicated to us as to what is really happening,’’ he said.
