The body of a suspected stowaway who died at the undercarriage compartment of an Arik Air aircraft – Airbus A345, Reg CS-TFX – at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, was on Saturday evacuated by The Federal Airports Authority of Nigerian (FAAN).

When the General Manager, Public Affairs, FAAN, Mr. Yakubu Dati spoke to the press, he said that the body, whose identity was still unknown, had been deposited at an undisclosed mortuary, following due diligence by the relevant agencies.

“The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) is currently reviewing footages of the CCTV system and airside security operations with a view to identifying the gaps and personnel failure, if any, in order to take remedial actions”, Dati said.

“The Authority had intensified efforts at improving security and safety at both land and airside through the installation of high tech screening machines, CCTV surveillance cameras and patrol teams”.
