The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has explained that the ongoing security check at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Ikeja by the America’s Transport Security Administration (TSA), would further boost efforts being made to ensure security of air travelers.

Mr. Sam Adurogboye, General Manager, Public Relations, NCAA made this known in Lagos.

According to him, security check is a routine exercise hinged on safety requirements guiding flight operations between the two countries over the years and would not pose any security threat.

‘’We wish to affirm that the ongoing Audit of the security system in place at Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos by America’s Transport Security Administration (TSA) is routine.
