The Nigeria Customs Service and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) have agreed to work for improved security at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos.

This is contained in a statement jointly signed by Public Relations Officer of Nigeria Customs Service, Wale Adeniyi on behalf of the Comptroller-General of Customs, and General Manager (Corporate Affairs) of FAAN, Yakubu Dati on behalf of the Managing Director.

The duo disclosed that the agreement was reached at a high level meeting of officials of both organisations recently held in Abuja after the fracas between some officials of the two organizations at MMIA.

The statement said: “The Customs delegation was led by the Comptroller-General of Customs, Dikko Inde Abdullahi, while FAAN was led by its Managing Director, Engr Saleh Dunoma.

“ After their deliberations, the meeting arrived at the following decisions:

a. The two Chief Executives expressed regrets over the incidence of 3rd June 2015 and agreed to work together to avoid future occurrence.

b. That the Comptroller General of Customs will investigate the involvement of Customs Officers in the fracas and will take appropriate punitive action if they are found guilty.

c. That the Comptroller-General of Customs will review current deployments at MMIA, to ensure that only officers who meet the requirements of civility are retained.

e. That operations in the Airports will be guided by strict adherence to processes and procedures established by the Law.

f. That current conflicts in the enabling Acts of the two organisations will be harmonised through a joint legal committee in line with International Best Practice.”
