The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says it is investigating a reported attack on a Moroccan airline at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
Royal Air Maroc, Morocco’s national carrier, had arrived from Rabat, Morocco, on Friday morning with its baggage cabin door opened.
The agency said it is suspecting the cabin door opened as a result of “forced landing”.
Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN’s general manager, corporate affairs, said: “Aviation security officials that escorted the aircraft upon landing noted that although all necessary security landing procedures were observed as the aircraft was landing and there was no invader around the aircraft, they suspected the opening must have been as a result of forced landing.
“Further investigation revealed that all passengers on the flight got their luggage intact, except for a certain Tazi Larbi, whose luggage with tag number 829116 did not come on the flight because it was left in Morocco
The incident happened barely three months after an unidentified man prevented a Port Harcourt-bound plane from leaving the airport. (The Cable)
