June 4, 2015 – Pictures: Nigerian Customs Officials Beat FAAN, Airport Staff To Coma At MMIA Ikeja Lagos

4 officials of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN were beaten to a pulp by some overzealous officials of the Department of Customs on Tuesday.

It all started when two Customs officials attempted to gain entry onto the air side of MMIA airport without any form of identification, in a breach of security regulation of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and were prevented from doing so by Aviation Security officials. The Customs men then resorted to beating the aviation security officials in full public glare, leading to brief disruption of operations in the immediate vicinity.

The victims have been taken to the aviation clinic in Ikeja for treatment.

    What’s strong with our men in uniform? Army want to show supremacy over Police, Customs want to show supremacy over Civil defense and Security Officers. It seems we are confuse about who has the higher authority on who. I think it is time to stop this ignorance. In a well organized society, the law enforcement agents have more authority than Soldiers. The Army is more relevant during the war time and their function is to protect the citizens not by going to public places to show their bravery. Any Nigeria Police has power of arrest over any Nigeria Soldiers. That is the law. In UK, USA or in any western Countries a Police Officer has more power to arrest, interrogate and detain Army if he/she violate civil law and regulations. In this case, the Custom Officers were wrong for beating up those Security Officers. In fact, after going through criminal Court process, those security officer should bring up a civil law suit against those officers. The Security Officers are being paid to ensure the safety of travelers and to prevent any intruder coming to endanger the lives of people on board. The Customs Officers failed to identified themselves and if those Securities allowed them in then that means they are not doing their job. The Customs should apologize and settle those guys out of court otherwise those Custom men deserve some jail time plus dismissal. This is gross violation of human right. With this present administration, we all need to straighten things out if not, Nigeria will ever remain a Banana republic.

      Jilo you rightly said it. You said my mind. Additionally, I believe those custom officials have something to hide. They aid drug smuggling by taking bribes. They should be investigated. They should be made example by dismissing them and put in jail and the Customs should pay the hospital bills of the FAAN officials. They should be jailed.
