Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has debunked allegations of theft at the airport as baseless and impossible.
This is a reaction to allegations of poaching of aircraft and stealing of baggage at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.
Earlier on Tuesday, a private jet purportedly conveying two top Nigerian musical artists, Ayodeji Balogun aka “Wizkid” and Tiwa Savage from Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom State, was allegedly attacked and robbed while taxiing on Lagos airport’s runway.
The Bombardier Challenger 605 jet with registration number T7-A00 arrived Lagos from Uyo at about 8:33 p.mm and was slowly taxiing to the arrival hangar when the cargo compartment was allegedly burgled.
Reports said upon arrival at Quits Aviation Center, a private jet hangar, the pilot discovered that two bags belonging to Ms. Savage and Wizkid had allegedly been stolen.
Amidst allegations of poaching of aircraft and stealing of baggage at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, FAAN said such allegations as baseless and practically impossible.
While Wizkid has remained mute about the incident, Tiwa took to social media to vent her frustration.
The incident is coming shortly after another alleged theft of passengers’ property occurred at the airport.
SaharaReporters had reported that a Vistajet jet with the registration number 9H-VFA operated by Evergreen Apple Nigeria (EAN) Ltd was allegedly robbed on December 12 when taxiing to the hangar of EAN.
