Aviation Security personnel of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria on Thursday arrested a staff of a cleaning firm at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, with the sum of $271,135 (N51.5m)
According to FAAN, the AVSEC officials prevented the trafficking of the total sum of $271,135, through the Lagos airport by arresting the cleaner.
The authority, in a statement on Thursday night, said “The sum was found on a worker with one of the cleaning contractors at the airport, Mr. Tijani Owolabi, during a pat down at one of the screening points at ‘D’ Finger of the international terminal.
