FAAN bans non-traveling passengers from the airport as operations resume

As Nigeria gets ready for the gradual reopening of airports for flight movements, the Federal Government has issued flight resumption protocols for passengers who wish to travel. The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) announced that with the resumption of commercial flight operations at various airports, passengers who are not travelling will not be allowed into the airport terminal building.

This was disclosed by the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria on Monday, June 16, 2020, through a tweet post from the government aviation agency’s official Twitter handle.

This is part of the new protocol to be implemented by FAAN in adherence to the safety measures that had been announced by the Presidential Rask Force (PTF) for Covid-19, and Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

It means that only passengers with valid travel documents will be allowed inside the airport terminal building.

Looters

The Plateau State Government on Wednesday begun the prosecution of over 300 suspected looters and arsonists in the state.
They were accused of looting, criminal trespass and inciting public disturbance, among other charges.
The suspects, who had been in military and police detention after they were arrested in different parts of Jos and the Bukuru metropolis between Saturday and Sunday, were moved to the Bassa Local Government Area on Wednesday for arraignment.

The defendants were arraigned one after the other at Jebbu Bassa Area Court before several judges including Justices N S Dashe, Adar Roseline Baraje, and L B Longs as well as Lawal Sulaiman, among others.

In all the cases brought before the judges, the prosecutors from the state Ministry of Justice told the court that the accused persons committed the offences against the state and should be prosecuted according to the law.
The defence counsels, however, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy for the accused persons, particularly as they were first offenders.
The defence counsels also pleaded for short sentencing with an option of fine after their clients pleaded guilty to the offences.
