The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) on Friday inaugurated a mobile surveillance vehicle to curtail incidences of cable vandalism and insecurity at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA).
Mr Kabir Muhammad, Managing Director, FAAN, said at the unveiling of the vehicle, at the international wing of the airport, that the organisation had also enhanced the CCTV cameras, physical surveillance and number of staff in a bid to improve security at the airside.
He said that the agency was in the process of procuring more operational vehicles for security purposes.
“FAAN has purchased six so far, and an additional 10 are still expected, and we are still looking at other airports across the country, but for now, Lagos is the major concern.
“We are putting one here for a start. We have some radars at 18R and 18L and they will be feeding information to this, and we will be able to also monitor it from the tower,” he said.
