FAAN Reveals Identity Of Man Who Climbed Aircraft At Lagos Airport

The official account said the man (intruder) was sighted trying to climb into and Azman Aircraft waiting for clearance from Air Traffic Controllers.

A Nigerian man has been arrested after causing fear among passengers when he climbed to the wing of a plane about to take off at the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos.

The pilot of the plane reported the incident to the aviation security, Avsec, and the man was arrested.

A video taken by a passenger on the aircraft shows the man moving around the wing of the plane as frightened passengers called on the crew to open the exit doors.

"FAAN takes full responsibility for this incident as we remain fully committed to our core values".

Captain Yadudu, at a briefing in Kano on Saturday in reaction to the incident, said Adamu is now with the Airport Police Command and the authorities consider it a serious security breach.

It was not clear how the man reached the plane or what his intention was.

"The aircraft and luggage were thoroughly scrutinized", the company explained, before determining that it was safe to fly to Port Harcourt in Nigeria's Niger Delta.

Meanwhile, following the incident, FAAN has suspended indefinitely the Aviation Security unit heads who were on duty when the incident occurred, pending completion of ongoing investigation into the regrettable security infringement.

Four officers in all were affected: the airport chief security, global terminal security chief and heads of two domestic terminals.

A flight taking off from Lagos, Nigeria, was delayed on Friday after passengers on the flight noticed a man climbing onto the wing as it was taxiing towards the runway.

She said the current arrangement was aimed at ensuring an efficient and thorough investigation toward the recovery and sustenance of the airport's proactive security integrity.

The statement added: "FAAN views this breach as a serious security concern and has commenced investigation to ascertain the remote and immediate causes of this incident to forestall future occurrence".
