FAAN Denies Attack On Maiduguri Airport

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has denied reports that an explosion in Maiduguri city had affected the international airport.

Multiple explosions had rocked some parts of Maiduguri early Saturday morning.

But a statement by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN said the airport was not under any type of attack and neither was there an explosion that affected it.

The statement reads in part, “The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria hereby wishes to notify passengers and the general public that there was neither an explosion nor intrusion at the Maiduguri airport.

“The airport was not targeted, and is not under any attack whatsoever”.

However, the One Thousand Housing Estate near Hajj Transit Camp where repentant Boko Haram insurgents are being housed, was affected by the explosions.
