The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has apprehended a staff of Arik airline for soliciting bribe from a passenger at the general aviation terminal in Lagos.
Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN confirmed the development in a statement in Lagos on Tuesday.
Recall that FAAN had warned that bribe seeking airport officials will henceforth be barred from airport if caught.
This was resolved after FAAN summoned an emergency meeting due to increasing rate of indiscipline and corrupt acts among airport officials.
Yakubu confirmed that the on-duty card of the erring staff was withdrawn immediately, and she has been handed over to the relevant security agency for appropriate action in order to serve as deterrent to other bad eggs in the airport.
“Officials were also directed to always wear conspicuous name tags anytime they are on duty.
“airport managers have been directed to ensure that all stakeholders at the airports are properly sensitised on the new development as there will be no sacred cows.”
