A yet-to-be identified man suspected to be a cable vandal has died inside the powerhouse of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) at the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos

The suspected vandal had allegedly attempted to steal electrical cables and other equipment inside the FAAN powerhouse before he was electrocuted by the cables. The middle-aged man found his way into the power generating building and had begun disconnecting the installations that supply power to the Lagos Airport before he met his Waterloo.

Confirming the incident, the managing director of FAAN, Olubunmi Kuku, said the agency was leaving no stone unturned towards ensuring that all loopholes that will allow unauthorised persons into the airports were blocked.

Kuku, who spoke at the commissioning of 30 Special Forces that will man the Lagos Airport, affirmed that vandals have crossed the perimeter fences of airports and stole airfield lighting equipment, or potentially harm some workers on site.

“I would say that there are two sides to this, that our environment is quite unique in the sense that we do have some security issues nationwide, we’ve been quite lucky within the airport environments that we haven’t had any of those major incidents. We do have, you know, individual issues.

So across the airside you’ve seen where we have people who are either crossing our fence, or of course, either trying to steal our airfield lighting equipment, or potentially even harm some of the individuals that we have on site. We had an incident, where an individual actually went into our power house and he got electrocuted.”(www.naija247news.com).
