The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has revealed the identity of the man who climbed on the wings of an Azman Aircraft, waiting for clearance from Air Traffic Controllers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos.

The man said to be a Nigerian, was identified as Mr Usman Adamu and he reportedly lives in Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos State.

Breifing journalists on Saturday in Kano, the Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Captain Rabiu Yadudu said the stowaway is currently in custody of the Airport Police Command over the incident considered a serious security breach, and also led to the indefinite suspension of four Aviation Security unit heads.

“The suspect identified as Usman Adamu, a Nigerien in origin and who claimed to reside in Iyana Ipaja, on the 19th of July was reported to have appeared at the domestic end of the taxiway and attempted to gain access to the aircraft while it was taxying to the holding point.

“He was apprehended, detained and is currently with the Airport police command as our investigation progresses.

“The authority considers this incident a serious security breach and an air sight incursion, this is unfortunate and embarrassing.”

We reported earlier today that FAAN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu, had said in a statement that the interim General Manager, Anne Enyinnaya-Egbadon, had been detailed to take charge of security at the Lagos airport.

He may be mentally unstable. I don't think he's normal.
