Following the theft of a runway lighting system at the Lagos airport, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has redeployed the South-West regional manager of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Felix Akinbinu, to its Airfield Services department.

This was disclosed by the director of public affairs and consumer protection of FAAN, Yakubu Funtua, who said the airfield lighting system at the domestic runway 18R/36L of the airport was the one stolen.

The incident led to the suspension of some heads of departments at FAAN on the directive of the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Aviation, Emmanuel Meribole.

Funtua further said FAAN has commenced an investigation into the matter and would do all it can to recover the stolen items, fish out the perpetrators and block all the loopholes that had been of concern about airport security.

In a memo signed by the managing director of FAAN, Kabir Mohammed, Akinbinu is to hand over to Sunday Ayodele – who was general manager, airfield services on or before Friday, July 14.
