Due to some reports making rounds, about a bomb threat in Air Peace Flight, the Federal Airports Authority, FAAN, has come out to say that the reports of a bomb allegedly placed on an early morning Air Peace flight from Abuja to Lagos are false
Mr. Henrietta Yakubu, the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, in a statement, alleged that the passenger that raised the alarm is said to have a history of mental illness and is currently with the security agencies and medical experts for assessment.
As soon as the false information was raised, officers of FAAN’s aviation security quickly evacuated passengers, crew and cargo on board the flight and a bomb squad immediately conducted a thorough check on the aircraft and baggage, which confirmed the information to be false.
A thorough and diligent test was carried out on the aircraft, before a fresh boarding call was made and all passengers boarded the flight for take-off to the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria will like to reassure passengers and all airport users that our airports are safe and secure. They should carry on their lawful activities without any fear.
“FAAN is committed to her core values of Safety, Security and Comfort”.
