Terrorists set to attack airports

02 December 2016, 16:02

Lagos - Security experts in the aviation industry yesterday warned that terror attacks were imminent at airports around the country.

The experts, after a close look at happenings in and around the aerodromes, said that the news of another stowaway on Arik Air aircraft suggested that attacks might just be closer than the authorities were aware of.

The concerned stakeholders, who spoke at the breakfast meeting of the Aviation Safety Round Table (ASRT), a think-tank group of the sector, urged an immediate review of the aviation security programmes at the airports and operating airlines, if the country must prevent a possible attack.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has said it is doing its best to ensure that security standards are duly implemented at the airports.

The lifeless body of a stowaway was on Wednesday found in the main wheel well of one of the Arik Air’s A330-200 aircraft at the Oliver Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg according to News24.

An aviation security consultant, Group Captain John Ojikutu (rtd), observed that it was the second time Arik was being targeted within three days, after some armed robbers told police in Port Harcourt, Rivers State that they were headed for an Arik plane when they were apprehended in a shootout.
