FAAN ejects cargo agents

The Federal Airports
Authority of Nigeria
has evicted the
Customs agents at the
hajj and cargo area of
the Murtala
Mohammed Airport
(MMA), Lagos for
security reasons. This is
the second time in two
months that the
agents have been
ejected.
The ejection took place
at night when the
agents had already
close shop for the day’s
operation.
Also, sources said
there was a joint
security meeting held
last Tuesday where it
was agreed that FAAN
should implement the
eviction of the agents.
The security meeting
was attended by
Aviation Security, State
Security Services and
the Nigerian Police
Force. According to the
Deputy General
Manager, Public Affairs,
MMIA, Mr. Victor Arisa
the eviction followed
the earlier agreement
between the two
parties earlier in the
year.
According to him,
leadership of the
Association of National
License Customs Agents
(ANLCA) and the
National Association of
Government Approved
Freight Forwarders
(NAGAFF) both agreed
to relocate their
operations from where
they presently operate.
He said that the
ultimatum issued the
operators had since
elapsed, but they
intentionally delayed
their relocation.
