Moment when A Passenger’s Bags Was Stolen By Touts At Lagos Airport
A video has emerged on how a passenger’s luggage was stolen by touts at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
A video obtained by Gistmania shows when a passenger’s luggage was presumed stolen by touts at the International wing of Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
It is no more news that Nigeria Airports is bedeviled by touts, thefts, extortion and begging by Immigration and airport staff, and so on.
Following the rising cases of theft including a recent robbery of a private jet waiting to take off after bandits accessed the airside of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, the federal government recently reinforced the security apparatus at the nation’s airports.
The new strategy, to combat these vices include: the expansion of areas covered by the Close-Circuit Television (CCTV), reinforcement of security team that patrols all areas of the airports, profiling of Aviation Security (AVSEC) personnel, close monitoring of airport users and workers and ban to persons who have been sacked from the airport from gaining access to any of the airports unless they are travelling and other security details not made known due to security reasons.
However, things are yet to be “normal” at our airports as some of the vices are still prevalent, like this case of stolen luggage.
