The management of Arik Air has suspended one of its staff caught by the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) asking for bribe at the domestic wing of the Murtala Mohammed International, Lagos, pending further investigations.

Mr Ola Adebanji, Manager, PR/Communications at Arik Air, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday.

NAN reports that on Nov. 9, FAAN apprehended the staff while soliciting bribe from a passenger at the airport in Lagos.

Consequently, the On Duty Card, ODT, of the staff has been withdrawn by FAAN and handed over to the relevant security agency for appropriate action in order to serve as a deterrent to other ”bad eggs in the airport.”

Adebanji said: “While the management conducts its own internal investigation, we wish to reassure FAAN of our cooperation on this matter if further investigation is required.

“We are fully in support of what FAAN is doing to rid our airports of this menace of corruption. (NAN)
