The supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Friday, broke through the airport fence and invaded the airport in a bid to receive former governor Aliyu Wamakko, who was on a visit to the state.
“The unfortunate incident, which occurred on Friday, August 3, 2018, is a gross violation of the security and safety arrangements at the airport, as thousands of political loyalists violently accessed restricted areas at the airport, breaking down the airport fence in the process and resisting all security machinery in place,” the statement read in part.
The situation was, however, curtailed by a team of aviation security officers at the airport who were able to restore normalcy at the airport.
FAAN then urged politicians and their supporters to ensure compliance with all rules and regulations at the airports even as the 2019 general elections are drawing closer.
The event occurred days after the defection of the state governor Aminu Tambuwal, from the APC to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
