FG to shut down Enugu airport for ‘security reasons’

The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced plans to shut down the Akanu Ibiam International Airport due to security reasons.


Speaking in Lagos at a stakeholders forum on Friday, Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika explained that the airport will be degraded for international operations, because the runway length is not ideal for such operations.


According to him, the market, television masts and free trade zone needs to be relocated for the airport to be fit for safe flights.
