FAAN accuses DSS head of slapping aviation security officer at airport

The Federal Airports Authority, FAAN, has accused Safiyanu Abba, the head of the Department of State Security, DSS, of obstructing the security process at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Aiport.

Abba is said to have slapped an aviation security officer who was discharging his duties at the airport on July, 17, 2020.

He's also accused of preventing a visitor from getting searched further despite setting off the alarm of the metal detector at the airport.

FAAN said, "We note with dismay that Mr Safiyanu Abba, the Head of DSS at NAIA deliberately obstructed airport Security process, and slapped an Aviation Security Officer who was performing his duty by calling on Mr Safiyanu Abba to desist from doing so.

"This happened on the 17th July at about 15:25 hours. He breached security procedure by obstructing further searching of a visitor who had just walked through the metal detector and activated the alarm.

"The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria strongly condemns this abuse of power and the Security process in our airport. This has also been duly escalated".
