The Authority, which regretted the action, stated that a combined team of anti-banditry military personnel and Crime investigation unit of FAAN Aviation Security Department swiftly intervened for rescue operation, with one casualty reported in the incident.

“Normalcy has since been restored at the airport. The team also recovered two motorbikes abandoned by the bandits.

“Additionally, heavy reinforcement team from the Nigerian Defence Academy is on ground to ensure safety and security of airport workers/users.

“The FAAN AVSEC Department has equally released operational vehicles to the team for patrol purposes”, a statement signed by Mrs. Faithful Hope-Ivbaze, spokesperson for the Authority, said.
