Three Airports Faces Security Threats As FAAN Withdraw Services 

Yemisi Izuora 

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has withdrawn its services at Gombe, Kebbi and Bebi airports over unsettled debts.

The agency has in a notice to airlines, passengers and the general public that effective midnight of Sunday December 9, 2018, said it is constrained to withdraw the services of its Security officers and Airport Fire and Rescue Services from those airports. 

FAAN said the action became imperative as the management of Gombe airport is indebted to the Authority to the tune of N607,289,972, while Kebbi and Bebi airports are indebted to the tune of N124,547,240 and N76,772,948 respectively without any concerted effort to pay up the debt.

The Authority has issued a Notice To Airmen (NOTAM) to this effect so as to give operators into the airports the opportunity to review their logistics plan.
