A very heavy thunder storm occurred at Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu in the early hours of Wednesday destroying some parts of the Airport Terminal Building, Pilot Lounge and General Aviation Terminal.
It also affected Electric Power Lines to the Airport, FAAN Staff Secondary and Primary School Buildings and Private Residential Buildings.
However, Henrietta Yakubu, spokesperson for Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), said the Authority took immediate remedial action which allowed flight operations in and out of the Airport.
“FAAN is doing her best to restore normalcy. There was no loss of life or injury and also flight operations were not affected in the Airport.
“The Management regrets the inconveniences caused by this incident to airport users and the general public”, she said.
