The management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has notified air travellers and the public that the Nigerian Air Force would be conducting a mock exercise on counter- terrorism simulation at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
The Managing Director of the agency, Saleh Dunoma, said the exercise was part of strategies to reinforce the safety and security of air transport and the nation’s airports, in addition to sustaining international best practice, regulatory policies and world class service delivery.
In a statement signed by the the General Manager, Public Affairs, FAAN, Saleh explained that the exercise might consist of aerial and land manoeuvres, which might create some dramatic spectacles and affect vehicular and human movements.
He therefore advised air travellers and members of the public to be aware and go about their normal activities as operations at the airport would not be affected.
While apologising for any inconvenience the exercise might cause, he enjoined air travellers and other airport users to always adhere to laid down rules and procedures for the safety and security of all.
