FAAN tightens security at airports following reports of ISIS sneaking jihadists into Nigeria

FAAN tightens security at airports following reports of ISIS sneaking jihadists into Nigeria ' The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says it has beefed up security at the major airports in the country following a recent report that insurgents are sneaking into Nigeria from Syria. A report published by The Sun UK on Monday June 18th, alleged that leaders of the terrorist group, Islamic State, are sneaking battle-hardened jihadists from Syria into Nigeria to train terrorists for possible attacks in Britain. The report said there were fears that strong links between Nigeria and the UK would make it easier for ISIS to send its killers to Britain to carry out terror attacks, death and destruction. The report also stated that there are fears that IS would exploit regular flights between Lagos and London to export more evil to the UK. In a swift reaction to the disturbing report, the general manager, corporate affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, told NAN that the agency has already taken concrete steps to stop anything untoward from occurring at the airports. According to her, special attention is being given to the Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Enugu and Port Harcourt airports which services international passengers and were gateways into the country via air. “We have sent alert to all our aviation security at the airports to ensure that they improved on security, especially screening of passengers to make sure unauthorised persons don’t gain access into our terminals. The airside patrol is being done through the military joint force and AVSEC. They do it round the clock. There are vehicles that are parked on the airside and they escort arriving and departing passengers.’’ she said Yakubu said FAAN had deployed modern equipment to screen passengers and baggage before entering the terminal. “Our closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the terminals and the airside are all functional. The anti-bomb squad are deployed behind the screening machines at the terminal alongside the AVSEC and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). They carry out further checks on any baggage that they suspect.” he said Yakubu also disclosed that the periodic simulation exercises to sensitise travellers and other airport users on how to manage emergency situations at the airports would soon be conducted following the fresh terrorism threat.

FG to disburse $322m Abacha loot to poor Nigerians

The Federal Government is reportedly making plans to disburse $322 million fund repatriated from the accounts of former Head of State, late General Sani Abacha in Switzerland to Nigerians.

DailyTrust reports that the National Coordinator of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), Nigeria and Special Assistant to the President on Justice Reforms, Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu disclosed this recently in an interactive session with newsmen.

Ibekeaku-Nwagwu said under a MoU with Switzerland, the funds would be paid directly into the accounts of the poorest Nigerians through their various accounts for two years and identification numbers to be made available on the website being developed by the National Social Investment office and the World Bank. She pleaded with Nigerians to be patient as the agency is working on the modalities and would brief the public on June 28th. Ibeakwu-Nwagwu added that the process for the payment will be transparent for civil society and the media to monitor.

She said despite oppositions against the MoU from within and outside government, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN) and his team have pursued President Muhammadu Buhari’s agenda of ensuring that the $322m was returned for deployment in the social safety nets project, which would make targeted transfers to the poor and vulnerable households.

“The poorest members of the community will be registered online, and before you make any payment, they must have an ID number so that every payment would be tracked. No amount will be paid out without a joint signature between Nigeria and the World Bank and without identification of individuals,” she said.

Ibekeaku-Nwagwu said President Buhari’s commitment to the Open Government Partnership during the London Summit in 2016 has enhanced transparency and accountability in government budgeting and contracting, adding that “If there is anything we have achieved its about getting Nigerian citizens to become conscious about what is happening with their money.”
