Post created on 9:36 am



Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has demolished the regional headquarters of the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, to pave way for the expansion of the Airport terminal.

The building, which until mid-2020 was the headquarters of the bureau, was marked for demolition in order to accommodate the expansion of the new Chinese terminal, which had been under construction since 2013.

With the demolition, N5 billion worth of investment and property had gone down the drain, for the commissioning of the Lagos terminal slated on Tuesday.

Other private hangars operating at the airport and government agencies including Dominion, Evergreen Apple Nigeria, Caverton, ExecuJet, office complex of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), the Federal Road Service Corps (FRSC) and the towing companies close to the AIB-N regional headquarters were also affected.

Most of the facilities at the AIB-N’s office in Lagos were installed less than four years ago by the current management led by Engr. Akin Olateru, the Commissioner, AIB.

The Training Centre, Mini Flight Safety Laboratory, which is used for downloading of flight recorders otherwise known as black boxes and investigators’ stores among others were asked to relocate without relocation allowance or a befitting office for them in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

FAAN had said the building and others would be used for apron extension of the new terminal.
