The Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN, Captain Rabiu Yadudu says security has been strengthened across airports and its staff quarters in the northern part of the country.
This is coming on the heels of the recent attacks on FAAN staff quarters at Kaduna airport on Saturday morning by armed bandits and the abduction of some staff of aviation agencies and members of their families.
Captain Yadudu said they had been communicating and working with the security agencies as well as the State Government, gathering some Information that would assist them handle the matter.
According to him, a risk assessment of a similar attacks on its staff last year from what was gathered from their investigation had helped them to come up with a robust strategy to counter such challenge.
The FAAN boss stressed that if there was a need for them to close the kaduna airport due to the incident, they would do so but the recent attack does not warrant that as the FAAN quarters is far away from the airport.
“We have taken appropriate measure we just need to now improve on them to counter this evolving challenge. The fence was broken, we have security personnel attending to the area but somehow some where things happen and now it is for us to counter, it is a risk, security challenges always come, they evolve and they improve and on our own part we keep improving”.
Captain Yadudu gave an assurance that the security architecture of the airport would continue to be improved upon with the support of security agencies and the state government.
