FAAN redeploys manager of Lagos airport over runway cable theft

Jul 14, 2023 #News

Mr Felix Akinbinu, Regional General Manager, South West of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, has been redeployed by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria over the theft of runway cables at the facility.

This is coming after the theft of the runway lighting system at the airport which has caused international embarrassment. The lighting which was installed in November 2022 enabled planes to use the runway at night. It was, however, stolen in May, weeks after rehabilitation work started on the runway, causing the diversion of international flights to the domestic runway known as Runway 18L. The stolen lighting system on the domestic runway 18 Runway/36 Left of the airport was reinstalled about eight months ago.

Akinbinu was redeployed alongside two other officials, Mrs Uguama Cecelia and Mr Ayodele Sunday as confirmed in an internal memo with Ref: FAAN/HQ/MD/19A/Vol.15/34 dated July 12. 

Akinbinu was moved to Regional Airport Services, Cecelia was moved from Regional Airport Services to Airfield Services while Sunday was moved from Airfield Services to become the Regional General Manager for the Southwest.
