The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) yesterday said it has burst the syndicate responsible for issuing fake Covid-19 results to air passengers.

In a press statement by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, the arrest was part of an effort to rid the nation’s airports of touting, extortion and other vices.

According to her, over 90 persons were caught at both the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, carrying out several vices and illegal activities

She said, “the touts were arrested for various acts of illegality including fake Covid-19 test results, touting, unauthorised entry, trespass, illegal facilitation, forgery, loitering, theft, public nuisance & arguments, amongst others.

“Some of those arrested are staff of Patovilki Nigeria Limited, Lakewood Services, Nahco Plc, and other airport staff,” she said.

She stated further that of the total arrested, 59 were handed over to the airport police command in Abuja for prosecution, while 30 were handed over to the police force in Lagos for the same.

“FAAN will like to use this opportunity to warn those that do not have any legitimate business at the airports, as well as airport staff carrying out illegal duties to desist from such acts, as the Authority will not hesitate to arrest and hand over such individuals for prosecution.”
